Blood bags labelled with barcodes. Donor blood is processed before use in patients. It is separated into its component parts and these components are used to prepare blood products of the optimum mix. Blood products are used to treat various blood disorders or to replace blood lost through surgery or an accident. Barcodes are used to keep track of the blood throughout the whole process and careful records are kept in case of infection or other complications.
