Updated: Nov 15, 2023

Mark your calendars and register for the upcoming ICCBBA Webinar on the ISBT 128 Medical Product of Human Origin (MPHO) Unique Identifier.

How can you leverage your ISBT 128 implementation to enhance both traceability and biovigilance?

Use the MPHO Unique Identifier!

What is the MPHO Unique Identifier?

It is a globally unique single data element, constructed from the key elements of traceability on an ISBT 128 MPHO label. [Donation Identification Number (DIN), Division Identifier (DIV), Product Description Code (PDC), and Processing Facility Identification Code (FIN(P)]

The use of the ISBT 128 MPHO Unique identifier is the key to success when electronically transferring information about an MPHO, whether it is additional information that may not be on the label, or accurately documenting the application of an MPHO in a patient’s electronic health record.

Use this opportunity to take your understanding of the MPHO Unique Identifier to the next level and begin the implementation of this useful data element.

ICCBBA is the international standards organization responsible for the management and development of the ISBT 128 Standard.

The acronym ISBT was originally derived from the important role played by the International Society of Blood Transfusion in the development of the standard. Today it expands as Information Standard for Blood and Transplant. The number 128 reflects the 128 characters of the ISO/IEC 646 7-bit character set.

The acronym ICCBBA is derived from the International Council for Commonality in Blood Banking Automation.
