Bataan Red Cross to acquire centrifuge machine worth P1.5M

By Gilda V. Llames

Bataan (6 October) -- A refrigerated centrifuge machine worth P1.5 million, will soon be acquired by the Philippine National Red Cross (PNRC) in Bataan.

The machine, according to Junilene E. Viesca, PNRC administrator, separates blood from its different components such as packed red blood cells (RBC); washed RBC and platelets.

The centrifuge, to be funded by the Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, will enable the PNRC to serve more people in Bataan by assuring a ready stock of blood at all times.

Aside from the centrifuge, the PNRC will also received a bigger refrigerator from the PCSO, Viesca said.

The new and bigger refrigerator will complement the small one being used by the PNRC in the province for several years now.

In a related development, the PNRC increased blood processing fees starting last September 15.

The price increase, Viesca stressed, is necessary so that the agency could sustain its blood service facilities and cope up with the continued increase in the prices of medicines or reagents used to ensure the quality and safety of blood. It is pursuant to Administrative Memorandum No. 67, dated September 12, 2003, from the PNRC National Headquarters. (PIA-Bataan) [top]
