Competency Evaluation

ICE (Immunohematology Competency Evaluation)



ICE is a new product from Hemo bioscience intended to provide blood bank laboratories an easy, convenient way to assess technologist competency as required annually by CLIA regulations.

ICE is available as three separate kits: basic, intermediate and advanced. You may purchase any or all of the kits depending on the type of competency you wish to assess. The volumes of materials allow multiple technologists to be assessed.

The kits are comprised of serological challenges along with worksheets for the supervisor to record results, a designation of pass or fail, and signature and date verification. The worksheet can be stored in a training file and is evidence to inspection agencies that competency evaluation requirements have been met.
