Blood banks are essential links in the healthcare supply chain around the globe. Thermo Fisher Scientific recently installed its one thousandth blood banking centrifuge in India at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences in New Delhi.
Thermo Scientific blood banking centrifuges, such as the Thermo Scientific Heraeus Cryofuge centrifuge series, include technologies such as energy-saving wind-shield rotors, flexible adapters to accommodate multiple blood bag formats, and hook adapters for leuco-reduction and small volumes such as umbilical cord blood.
For more than 30 years, Thermo Fisher has supplied its range of centrifuges for blood component separation to independent, government, and charitable blood banks and private and government medical institutions across India and more recently in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and the Maldives. In addition to centrifugation, Thermo Fisher provides reliable blood bank solutions for sample preparation, blood testing, whole blood and component storage, and research. Thermo Fisher has also been involved with India’s AIDS Control program and has collaborated with the National AIDS Control Organization to upgrade the nation’s blood processing and testing facilities with updated centrifuges.
Amol Deshpande, general manager for corporate marketing for Thermo Fisher Scientific, says, “Our one thousandth blood banking centrifuge installation marks an important milestone and underscores the increasing need in India and the region for a robust blood supply pipeline as a central component in today’s healthcare infrastructure.” Learn more about diagnostic solutions provided by Thermo Scientifc.
