Blood products are a significant cost for the society. FRCBS's blood donor research aims to minimize the costs of blood supply chain by analyzing process data collected by FRCBS.
The project has developed a blood product demand forecasting model in collaboration with Sanquin, the national blood service of the Netherlands, that is used for financial planning at the FRCBS (Turkulainen et al. 2022). In collaboration with FRCBS, researchers at Aalto University have developed an optimization algorithm for platelet storage levels.
