Optimize sample safety

When a sample is under threat, fast response is the key to protection. For this reason, NÜVE has created the AlerText™ SMS alarm system for ultimate security. As soon as a blood bank refrigerator goes out of set range tolerance for whatever reason – power failure, door left open… - a text message is sent to multiple mobile phones.

This could be sent to a service engineer who would respond as quickly as possible to check conditions and, if necessary, carry out repairs. It could equally be to a scientist who could decide if the samples need to be transferred to another refrigerator.

Optimize product quality

NÜVE Blood Bank Refrigerators are fitted with large observation windows and the bags are held in the drawers at an angle that makes them easy to identify. Do not open the door of the refrigerators and search for the required blood bag. Do the identification through the door window so that the door is opened for the minimum time. This way, the blood remaining in the refrigerator is subjected to the minimum temperature variance.

It has been proven that stable temperature is one of the critical factors in maintaining the highest product quality.

Optimize platelet quality

Always use the platelet agitator in a platelet incubator. When the platelet agitator is not fully loaded, spread the samples out on different shelves. This will permit free circulation of air for a better homogeneity of temperature in the incubator.
