Intended Audience: 
Anyone with a scientific background and an interest in blood components and quality.

Learning Objectives:
To inform and update participants on current components research in the UK. 

To provide an annual forum for scientists involved in component research, promoting discussion and collaboration. 

Brief Description:
This year’s Components session will look at various aspects of NEQAS in a component setting, highlighting the importance of quality in promoting high standards of performance, practice and products. Given the area we have chosen we aim to attract some excellent speakers and debate for this session which should make for another interesting and educational SIG.

This is a topical area at the moment and we expect that the session will once again give scientist an ideal opportunity to discuss/debate many of the important aspects in these NEQAS accredited schemes.
