Changes to Blood Products from Vitalant

The following changes to all blood products purchased from Vitalant which will go into effect beginning June 1, 2021. As of this date, Vitalant will be changing its blood bags from Haemonetics CP2D to Fenwal CPD. Specifically, the change will be to the blood bag itself, the product code, and the anticoagulant that preserves the product.

While this may not directly impact your use of Vitalant’s blood products, we wanted to give you advance notice.
