Sustainable Cold Storage for Blood Products

GX Solutions professional medical-grade refrigerators and freezers are designed to meet the unique demands associated with storing high-value blood products. They deliver optimized control in the management of temperature uniformity, recovery, and stability, ensuring contents are stored under optimal conditions. GX Solutions support environmental sustainability with the use of OptiCool™ technology They utilize natural refrigerants that have no impact on ozone depletion and extremely low global warming potential (GWP). They also reduce energy use compared to conventional medical-grade units and are ENERGY STAR® certified. This helps lower the total cost of ownership by reducing electricity costs. In addition, they eject less heat, limiting impact on heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. These models offer lower noise levels than conventional units. Quieter operation means fewer distractions and a more comfortable working environment for blood bank staff.

Solutions for Storage and Processing

Helmer Scientific offers several solutions for storing and processing specialty blood products. These include Platelet Storage Systems, QuickThaw® Plasma Thawing Systems, the UltraCW®II Cell Washing System, and a full line of high-quality clinical centrifuges from Hettich. These high-performance, reliable solutions, along with our temperature-controlled storage solutions, are all supported by our helpful Technical Service team.

Quality and Reliability

All Helmer Scientific products are designed and built to ensure they last for the long term. During the design process, GX Solutions blood bank refrigerators and plasma freezers underwent thorough Accelerated Life Testing (ALT) to ensure reliability. ALT identifies and addresses possible issues before equipment is released for general use. It exposes units to very high levels of stress to challenge the system and ensures the unit’s design can withstand the rigors of daily use through a 10-year life, limiting downtime and disruptions to workflow.

Regulatory Compliance

Helmer Scientific products support our customers’ efforts to achieve regulatory compliance. Temperature-controlled storage devices, such as blood bank refrigerators, plasma freezers, and platelet incubators, are designed to help facilities meet AABB Standards and CAP checklist requirements. These units are designed to ensure the proper temperature is maintained, and to continuously monitor and record the storage temperature. Select products are recognized by the AABB Standards-Compliant Products Program.
