This book is the second in a series of three covering all aspects of tissue banking, donation, processing and transplantation. The first book, Tissue and Cell Donation: An Essential Guide, published in April 2009 and the third book, Tissue and Cell Transplantation, will be developed in parallel. This new book explores the current state-of-the art of tissue and cell processing and the challenges that face the field, with the application of further technological innovation and ever-increasing national and international regulation. Tissue and Cell Processing addresses the scientific and operational principles of preservation, decontamination and sterilisation in a generic way and focuses, in later chapters, on tissue- or cell-specific issues relating to processing. Tools for the performance of risk assessment when there are adverse events, insight that addresses the challenges of process validation, and methods that evaluate tissue functionality post-processing are provided with worked examples. For all chapters from 10 onwards, authors have not described the general principles of tissue procurement, preservation, decontamination, sterilisation, or how to apply a quality system as these have been covered already in the earlier section. These chapters concentrate totally on tissue-specific issues. The style of the book, consistent with the other two in the series, includes case studies in text boxes and lists of learning points. Case studies, in the context of processing, consist of sample processing protocols, descriptions of where processing went wrong, sample risk assessments or validation studies. Tissue banking and transplantation has now become a core part of the workload of transfusionists and haematologists. This series of three books covers all one needs to know about tissue banking, from donor selection and donation, to processing and transplantation.
