WHAT IS NAT APP ?
NAT app is a donation collection and sample management platform, primarily focused on processing donor samples for NAT testing before issuing the blood to the respective patients. It is a combination of software, hardware and peripheral devices such as barcode/QR code readers, interfaced to form a complete management system for blood establishment in the hospital blood banks.
TECHNICAL DETAILS OF NAT APP
The barcodes and QR codes uniquely maintain sample information and the integrated blood screening machine (currently compliant to perform HIV/HBV/HCV & Syphilis) and makes use of this information to store NAT screening results against samples. The idea is to connect remotely located hospital blood banks (HBBs) with centralized regional centers (RCs) through NAT App and ensure a standard platform for blood safety management in the country.
