Full description:

We are developing systems to make plasma for transfusion blood group universal – i.e it could be transfused to anyone and we would like to know what patients and donors think about this. Plasma is the constituent of blood which contains clotting factors: the proteins that make blood clot. It is transfused to treat severe bleeding, for example after trauma, surgery or childbirth.
