Delivery of quality blood products depends on the individual components of the ASBP Blood Distribution System working together. The diagram below represents how blood (red solid lines), pre-positioned frozen blood (red dotted lines), and reports (blue dotted lines) flow within the system and demonstrates areas where efforts are coordinated (gray dashed lines). Acronyms used in the chart are defined below and include links to more detailed information about each component of the system.
