Bacterial contamination of blood products constitutes the most common microbiological cause of transfusion associated morbidity and mortality. (Klausen, S.S., et al., Transfus Apher Sci, 2014; 51 (2): 97–102). However, substitution of blood products is commonly necessary following hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) throughout phase of aplasia, bearing the risk of transfusion associated potentially life threatening infections.
