For blood donation and component processing, Fresenius Kabi offers medical devices. These include cell separators (apheresis systems), autotransfusion devices, blood bag and filter systems as well as related blood processing equipment. Component processing consists of the separation and collection of certain blood cells.
Blood Cell Separator
The Fresenius cell separator has three areas of application:
Donate blood cells: obtaining cells from the blood of a donor for transfusion, for example for treating coagulation dysfunctions or leukemia patients
Remove cancer cells: removing diseased cells or blood plasma from the blood of a patient with leukemia or an autoimmune disease, i. e., in patients with disorders where the body produces defense substances against its own cells
Collect a patient’s cells: collecting cells from a patient's own blood for re-infusion, for example prior to operation.
Blood bag systems
Blood bag systems are the foundation for worldwide blood supply by "classical" blood donation. More than 90 percent of all blood donations are processed in these systems that consist of up to six different bags with variable functions.
A combination of bags with venous cannulae and integrated needle protection, pre-donation sampling pouches and different filtration devices form the basis for highly professional whole blood collection systems. They allow producing different blood component preparations according to national and international standards. Blood donation and processing with these systems is supplemented by other devices such as automated scales and blood separators, sterile docking systems and sealers to name a few.
