Automated Blood Processing Equipment Market Overview
Automated blood processing equipment is used for the blood collection and processing of whole blood sample. The primary use of whole blood is as a source material for the preparation of blood components such as RBC (red blood cells), WBC (White blood cells), platelets, plasma and others components. The automated blood processing equipment helps to convert whole blood into different blood components, which are mostly used for the blood transfusion and others purposes. Reduced human intervention with minimal contamination chances and shorten the duration of blood processing by reducing processing steps are the key benefits of the automated blood processing equipment. Hospitals and blood banks focus on to optimize throughput without increasing lab burden, expedite patient care and enhance laboratory efficiency through automated blood processing equipment. Automated blood processing equipment provides efficient outcomes, which facilitate diagnosis and treatment, reduce emergency room times with faster and reliable results than the traditional blood processing equipment.
Blood transfusion procedure can be helpful in various life-threating situations such as an accident or surgery, cancer therapy and disease (leukemia, myeloma, etc.). Manual collection and processing of whole blood should be carried out taking safety measures, but that would be time-consuming and contamination prone process. The main advantage of automated blood processing equipment include reduction of a number of equipment involved in blood component separation processing, overcome the laborious steps and standardize the quality of blood component. Healthcare facilities are more interested in automated blood processing equipment due to compact characteristics that lead to the reduction of workspace and increases production efficiency.
