Factor products are expensive blood products with a shelf-life of two to three years. In order to minimize product expiry and waste of unused hospital stock, the BC Provincial Blood Coordinating Office (PBCO) coordinates a provincial Factor Redistribution Program. The safety and quality of redistributed factor products are ensured by the adherence of participating hospitals to the procedures described in the Factor Redistribution Program Manual.
