Blood Bank IoT Solutions
Blood banks face unique challenges when it comes to storing and transporting blood, plasma, and platelets. These potentially life-saving substances must be kept at specific temperatures. Any fluctuation can be disastrous. When blood warms, bacteria can grow, making it unsafe to use. If blood is allowed to get too cold, it can cause a potentially fatal reaction when transfused. Maintaining life saving red blood cells and plasma at appropriate temperatures from central lab to patient is essential.
Our Unique Blood Transportation Solution
For years, blood banks packed ice blocks and dry ice into coolers to maintain the temperature of blood and plasma. Mint Controls’ blood bank solution uses a battery-powered medical grade refrigerator on wheels for transporting blood, plasma and room temperature platelets. A variety of sensors are built in the mobile refrigeration unit to monitor the temperature of blood, plasma, and platelets. Our system sends automatic alerts the moment that changes are detected. This allows issues to be solved before problems can occur. Our solution helps track RBC and plasma bags to ensure they are reaching the right patients at the right temperature. Magnetic locks prevent unauthorized access to the refrigeration unit. This prevents loss and the chance of inventory being tampered with. The system sends alerts when the unit has been opened and inventory has been removed from the device.
Mint Controls’ solution monitors equipment health and performance. This allows blood banks to take a proactive approach to maintenance and other issues. Our solution monitors the compressor for excessive power usage. This is often the first sign of compressor failure. This helps detect problems sooner. The system tracks the amount of time needed between maintenance. This allows service to be scheduled well in advance.
Portable and Convenient
Our solution is battery-powered and can be moved easily between patients. This enables healthcare providers to provide blood to more of the people that need it. The location of the refrigeration unit can be tracked remotely from a cell phone, tablet, or computer through the use of a cellular GPS location feature. This ensures the unit doesn’t get lost or misplaced.
Automatic alerts provide notification when units are moved and inventory is accessed. Inventory is monitored for quality and age. The system alerts users when older stocks should be used first. This prevents loss and increases efficiency.
Integrates With Existing Systems
Mint controls’ solution integrates with existing software systems to provide a high level of value and convenience. Our solution installs quickly and easily, allowing blood banks to begin realizing the benefits of integration immediately.
