Transfusion devices

Transfusion devices

From the onset, stored blood posed technical challenges including the need to safeguard the recipient from the potential of embolic catastrophes caused by the administration of aggregated debris that formed in a spontaneous and progressive fashion. Therefore blood filtration is absolutely essential.

    What is the difference between TRANSMED 10 and TRANSMED 40?

    For many diseases, a blood transfusion using devices with cascade or fine filters is necessary and life-saving. Blood transfusion devices with various filter areas are available to users for this process. With TRANSMED 10, the effective elimination of particles larger than 10 µm is guaranteed. One problem of automatic transfusion using a machine and autologous direct transfusion is caused by fats in the retransfusion blood, which are held back with a 10 µm filter. With TRANSMED 40, it is possible to eliminate microaggregates which are larger than 40 µm. Both transfusion devices have integrated cascade filters (polyester) and are suitable for the transfer of up to six units of blood.

    How do the TRANSFLOW and TRANSFLOW-N transfusion devices differ from one another?

    Both TRANSFLOW and TRANSFLOW-N have integrated fine filters with a pore size of 40 µm. While TRANSFLOW is equipped with a fine filter made of polyester, TRANSFLOW-N has a fine filter made of nylon. Up to three units of blood can be transferred with each device.

    What is special about the transfusion device 200 µm?

    The transfusion device 200 µm has an integrated fine filter with a pore size of 200 µm.  This standard transfusion device is primarily used when no more than one unit of blood is to be transferred.
