Manually recording blood bank environmental conditions has the potential for inconsistent collection and inaccuracy. CenTrak’s automated temperature and environmental monitoring solution is easy to use and automatically records a range of information such as temperature and humidity. Our Smarter Sensor™ ensures blood storage temperature meets AABB standards.
What Is Blood Bank Monitoring and Why Has It Become So Critical to Healthcare Facilities?
To assure blood is safe for patient use, it is necessary to constantly maintain optimal temperature. CenTrak’s environmental monitoring solution facilitates immediate action by staff if temperatures destabilize. Blood bank monitoring not only reduces waste but provides rigorous support of inventory levels to ensure patients receive blood when they need it.
Manual recording of temperatures in blood banks has the potential for suffering human error as well. Customizable and with low learning curves, an automated environmental monitoring system not only documents temperature but also motion and humidity. This “blood cold chain ” system of storing, monitoring and transporting blood, plasma and other blood components is necessary for eliminating any health risks to recipients of blood bank products.
CenTrak’s environmental and temperature monitoring solution also provides automated reporting of blood storage conditions to prevent contamination, cross-contamination or spoilage. This accurate and timely wireless blood bank monitoring system is NIST certified, operates 24/7 and generates data that may be recorded at programmable intervals. CenTrak’s blood bank monitoring solution also covers a temperature range of -200 °C to +75 °C and has a 0.5 °C accuracy.
Failing to maintain blood at proper temperatures potentially renders blood unusable by allowing nitric oxide and
