Free registration required

Executive Summary

CaridianBCT designs automated blood collection systems that collect a combination of red blood cells, platelets and plasma from donors. At the heart of the FDA-approved Trima system is a VersaLogic EBX single board computer that automates the process and increases the efficiency of blood collection. The state-of-the-art technology uses cell separators that allow for the division of the various blood components in a high-speed centrifugal field while the device is still connected to the donor. This process allows collection of any combination of red blood cells, platelets, and plasma while returning unneeded components to the donor thereby allowing more frequent donations.
