Over time, Helmer Scientific has been asked about important factors for the design of equipment used in blood banks. What is it about the device that helps a blood center or a hospital transfusion service meet AABB standards? Are there additional considerations that should be kept in mind when selecting equipment for your blood bank?

For this reason, we have developed a series of Best Practices Guides for selecting various types of blood bank equipment. Each guide outlines the specific AABB standards that define the equipment’s characteristics, and provides additional considerations for best practices. The guides clarify how equipment design and features can help hospitals and blood centers comply with standards and facilitate best practices.  For your convenience, they are set up in an easy-to-use checklist format.

A Best Practices Guide is available for each of the following type of equipment:

  • Blood Bank Refrigerators
  • Plasma Freezers
  • Platelet Incubators and Agitators
  • Plasma Thawing Systems

Helmer Scientific has been serving the blood bank community for more than 40 years. We are here to support your efforts to properly store, monitor, and process your blood products. To learn more, download our Best Practices Guides.
