More safety for blood banks

Hettich provides transparency and traceability

Ensuring the quality of blood donations is vital. Data collected during the various processes involved must be fully traceable and documented, the company Andreas Hettich GmbH emphasises. Based in Tuttlingen, Germany, the company has produced laboratory equipment for 115 years, today focusing on centrifuges and incubators and employing 420 people worldwide.

Its new HettInfo II documents all steps before and during centrifugation. ‘The touch display guides the user step-by-step through the process, from scanning the blood bags to centrifugation,’ Hettich reports. ‘The blood bag ID, operator and program are entered using a barcode scanner. The running parameters are recorded in the background during centrifugation and can later be exported as a CSV file to a USB stick or, alternatively, directly to the network. The export can take place cyclically after each run or time-controlled.’
