Tackling the future of blood component lab

Blood manufacturing today

Blood component manufacturing is the process where whole blood is processed to obtain varoius blood components, including red cells, platelets, and plasma.


But it is a manual process that involves more than 30 steps, limiting the ability for possible growth and affecting the quality of the final products.

A process that needs updating

Challenges go beyond manual steps. Emerging markets suffer from lack of standardization, while in those with restrictive rules speed is critical.

In all markets it is clear that the transition towards a more data-driven system must be accelerated for more streamlined processes and automation.

Global trends also affect manufacturing

Labor shortage

The pandemic and world's baby shortfall are leaving millions of open positions unanswered, as well as underskilled staff in highly skilled positions.

Prince margin shrinkage

The cost of retaining and attracting donors is on the rise, resulting in component price margins decreasing in countries with private healthcare.

Global blood demand increase

Medical treatments using blood components and derivates are growing both in developed and developing countries.

Our mission is to improve blood component quality and production, advance cost-effectiveness, and increase throughput.

Introducing

Flowing Labs

Our new multi-stream project focussing on each step of the process from bag receiving to blood component delivery.

We’ve only just begun to investigate the solutions, but design potentials will be united by three key guiding drivers:

Sustainability

To have a positive impact the solution must be sustainable, taking all blood industry dimensions and limits into account.

Speed and quality

Preserving blood quality requires a round-the-clock process that removes bottlenecks and manual errors.

Digitization

To improve the overall manufacturing process we must enable the digital transition of manufacturing plants, and look towards the creation of smart factories.

It’s a big challenge, but we’re up to the task.

20 years

We have already made a significant footprint in the manufacturing space.

Global presence

Our extractors are used in thousands of blood centers across the world.

Open innovators

We constantly look for new and better ways to tackle our industry’s challenges.
