In its quest to build a better blood and vaccine cooler, Delta Development designed its Autonomous Portable Refrigeration Unit (APRU) over the cloud. Instead of ice-packed coolers, Tucson, Arizona-based Delta Development’s APRU refrigerates fresh whole blood and vaccines with a built-in battery that lasts for days on a single charge.
A laboratory-validated cooler that utilizes PCM technology to keep products such as blood products, tissues, and organs 1-6°C for 112+ hours without the need for electricity, ice, or buffering material. Ideal for extended RCB storage (or transportation), field-ops, and power outage backup.
The Revco REB404A Undercounter blood bank refrigerator from Thermo Scientific has a 4.9 cubic foot volume, can hold 133 450mL whole blood bags, and runs on 120V power. Revco high-performance blood bank refrigerators are designed to meet strict requirements established by the AABB for the storage of whole blood and blood components.
