Health Canada: Québec City facility and Laurier Québec Globule Centre pass inspection
Québec, November 14, 2011 — The Héma-Québec facility in Québec City and the Laurier Québec Globule Blood Donor Centre had their licenses renewed following the annual inspection by Health Canada, which took place from October 3 to 7, 2011.
One observation that has no major impact on product safety was made by the inspectors. Corrections have already been made or will be made shortly.
“The fact that Héma-Québec has retained its license shows that it fully complies with the safety measures required by Health Canada and that the staff of the blood product supplier makes work quality a constant priority,” stated Dr. Jean de Serres, President and Chief Executive Officer of Héma-Québec.
Héma-Québec aims to efficiently provide adequate quantities of safe, optimal blood components, substitutes, human tissues and cord blood to meet the needs of all Quebecers provide and develop expertise along with specialized and innovative services and products in the fields of transfusion medicine and human tissue transplantation.
Give blood. Give life.
