Helmer Scientific has been serving the blood bank community for 40 years.  Over time we have received questions about what is important in the design of platelet storage equipment. What is it about the Platelet Incubator and Agitator that helps our customers meet AABB standards for storing platelet products? Are there any other considerations that should be taken into account when selecting Platelet Incubators and Agitators?

For this reason, we have developed a Best Practices Guide for Selecting Platelet Incubators and Agitators. The guide outlines the specific AABB standards that define the characteristics of Platelet Incubators and Agitators and provides additional considerations for best practices. It clarifies how the design of Platelet Incubators and Agitators can help blood centers and hospitals comply with standards and facilitate best practices in an easy-to-use checklist format.

At Helmer Scientific, we are here to support your efforts to properly store and monitor your blood products.  To learn more, download the Best Practices Guide for Selecting Platelet Incubators and Agitators.
