This case report describes laboratory management of a chronically transfused sickle cell anemia patient with multiple antibodies and the time involved in providing compatible red cells for transfusion. Time was evaluated using the laboratory workload record ing method of the College of American Pathologists. Red cell units were sent to the hospital within 24 to 48 hours from receipt of a referral sample, despite a workload recording time in excess of 15 hours for a typical sample.
