Processing donated blood efficiently and ensuring its safe use in transfusions require stringent hematology testing combined with rapid and accurate results. The micro-pipette adapter (MPA) of Medonic M32 hematology analyzer allows fast and user-friendly operation to help blood banks in securing these vital objectives.
Rapid pre-donation testing of HGB/HCT, WBC, and PLT
Pre-donor testing helps confirm donor suitability. Key questions to answer include whether or not the individual is suitable for donation, what is the exact platelet (PLT) count (needed for optimal processing) and does the donor have a possible infection. Medonic M32 quickly analyses and presents these parameters, showing hemoglobin/hematocrit (HGB/HCT), PLT and white blood cell (WBC) values as easy-to-understand profiles.
Quality monitoring of key blood components
Accurate monitoring of platelet concentrate facilitates optimal pooling and the equivalent information for red blood cells (RBC) is needed to define the number of cells in each concentrate bag. Medonic M32 quickly generates accurate PLT-C and RBC-C results, all presented in an easy-to-read manner.
MPA function offers fast pre-donation testing
Medonic M32 analyzer features MPA sampling. Simply make a finger stick, draw blood into a special 20 μL micro-capillary tube, slide it into the adaptor, and insert in the analyzer. About one minute later, you view all the key results on the touchscreen. There is no preparation, no pre-dilution, no vacuum tubes and no needles. As well as making fast, pre-donation blood cell determinations, MPA also saves the vein for donation.
