Prevention of hypothermia
The ideal human core body temperature is +37 °C. Considering a fluctuation tolerance, a temperature range of 36 °C to 37.5 °C is referred to as normothermic. If the temperature falls below this, hypothermia is present. This article explains how and under what circumstances this occurs, what short- and long-term effects it has, and what positive effects maintaining normothermia has.
Prevention of contamination
Thawing blood and blood products in water baths has been standard procedure for a long time and still is today. However, it is now evident that open water baths harbor a high risk of contamination. Nosocomial infections find fertile ground to spread here. This article explains the concept of nosocomial infections, the dangers they entail and how contamination can be prevented.
Cell & Gene Process
The development of cell and gene therapies (CGT) is a complex and small-scale process. From discovery and development to clinical and commercial manufacturing, cryopreservation and cell thawing play a critical role. Standardization, flexibility and the use of certified medical devices must be ensured.
Dry heating method
To ensure the integrity of products such as blood and FFP, but also stem cell therapies or cell culture media, it is worth minimizing any source of risk for damage or contamination. Therefore, all Barkey products rely on dry-tempering processes. You’ll find more about the operation of the dry-tempering processes and their advantages explained in this article.
