How the BloodTrack® HaemoBank™ works

This entire process takes less than a minute, so there is no need to get blood ahead of time.

  1. When a patient needs a transfusion, authorised user goes to the HaemoBank device and identifies themselves as well as the patient.
  2. The BloodTrack software communicates with the Blood Bank Information System (LIS) to determine ABO-Rh and eligibility of the patient.
  3. The BloodTrack OnDemand™ software selects an appropriate unit and an electronic crossmatch is performed by the LIS.
  4. The blood is then automatically dispensed by the HaemoBank device, labeled, and verified.
  5. The unit is now ready to be delivered to the patient for transfusion.
