GX Solutions: Undercounter Refrigerators for Point-of-Use Blood Storage

Posted on Feb 13, 2019 by Colleen Holtkamp


Remote storage of blood products at the point-of-use can be an efficient means of providing life-saving therapy when and where it is needed. For example, a hospital might store uncrossmatched Type O blood and thawed plasma in the Emergency Department for trauma patients. This type of strategy can reduce waste due to over-ordering or inadequate storage conditions. In this scenario, a compact refrigerator such as an undercounter unit is often the right size for storing a limited amount of blood.

Helmer Scientific has long offered undercounter refrigerators designed for blood storage. A new generation of these compact models is now available. GX Solutions are professional medical-grade refrigerators, which means that they deliver optimal management of temperature, noise, and energy use. Designed for critical healthcare applications, they excel in all three key temperature management areas:

  • Temperature uniformity
  • Temperature recovery
  • Temperature stability

In addition to optimal temperature management, GX solutions undercounter blood bank refrigerators offer lower noise levels than conventional blood storage units. Quieter operation means fewer distractions and a more comfortable working environment for staff. GX refrigerators also reduce energy use. They are ENERGY STAR® certified and use up to 50% less energy than conventional undercounter blood bank refrigerators, reducing electricity costs. They eject less heat as well, limiting impact on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

In addition to excellent performance characteristics, GX solutions blood refrigerators support environmental sustainability. They utilize natural refrigerants that have no impact on ozone depletion and extremely low global warming potential (GWP).

Helmer Scientific has offered high quality blood storage equipment for more than 40 years. We are thrilled to now offer GX Solutions undercounter blood bank refrigerators such as the model iBR105-GX. This compact unit is perfect for point-of-use applications, or anywhere a small number of blood products need to be stored.
