Pro Line Floor Model Platelet Storage Systems

Reliable platelet storage is essential to blood centers and hospital transfusion services. Platelet products have a short shelf life and cannot be stockpiled. Therefore, blood banks constantly face the challenge of making sure enough platelets are available to meet patient needs.

This means it is essential to have a platelet storage system that users can depend on to meet their requirements. To maintain viability, room temperature platelet products must be stored within a tight temperature range and with continuous gentle agitation.

Pro Line Floor Model Platelet Storage Systems from Helmer Scientific offer the precise temperature uniformity, constant agitation, and reliable performance that are critically important to blood banks and support regulatory compliance.

Pro Line floor model incubators are powered by OptiCool™ RT Cooling and Heating Technology. The OptiCool™ RT system combines a variable capacity compressor (VCC) and natural hydrocarbon (HC) refrigerants with pulse heating to deliver a safe and reliable storage solution for platelet storage.

OptiCool™ RT provides a consistent environment to safeguard room temperature platelet products. With optimal temperature uniformity of +/- 1°C and an operating set point of 22°C, these models ensure safe storage between 20-24°C.

Constant temperature monitoring is required to safely store platelets and support blood bank compliance. Pro Line floor model incubators feature the innovative i.Center® Plus Information Center. The i.Center® Plus provides next-generation technology for an improved user experience while maintaining world-class temperature monitoring to safeguard stored products.

Pro Line Floor Model Platelet Storage Systems support energy efficiency and sustainability. Pro Line floor model incubators use over 75 percent less energy than previous generation models. This helps facilities reduce their utility bills, decreasing operating costs.

Pro Line platelet storage with OptiCool™ RT also helps facilities meet new environmental standards to reduce the use of HFC refrigerants, supporting facility sustainability initiatives. In addition, quiet operation provides a better working environment for staff.


Life-saving platelet products are critical to patient care. Pro Line Floor Model Platelet Storage Systems combine innovations in performance, reliability, and efficiency to safeguard platelets, reduce energy use, and support sustainability as well as blood bank compliance.
