5.3: Haemoglobin screening

A validated haemoglobin screen should be applied to all donors prior to donation. The objective is to ensure that prior to each donation the donor has a minimum acceptable haemoglobin concentration (currently at least 125 g/L in females and at least 135 g/L in males, see section 3.15).
