With the Barkey plasmatherm C&G, you can thaw blood products, cryopreserved products or infusions:
even, reproducible, time- and temperature-controlled.

Optional accessories: Barkey vialguard

To make optimum use of the Barkey plasmatherm C&G, up to four blood or plasma bags are placed between two cushions filled with water. During this process, the water is pumped into the cushions where it circulates continuously. This dry tempering process guarantees constant temperatures with minimal variations in accordance with the applicable guidelines for blood and blood products[1],[2],[3],[4].

Product safety in accordance with hygiene guidelines is guaranteed, as the bag preserves are not in direct contact with the heating medium water (dry tempering). The cushions ideally conform to the shape of the preserves. Integrated moisture sensors detect leaks at an early stage and use visual and audible signals to alert the user to possible deviations. Visual inspection of the bag preserves by means of a transparent lid unit enables the monitoring of sensitive blood and blood products. The safety of the product and its biological value are permanently guaranteed by a preset temperature limitation.

The user can choose between 5 preset programs: Thaw + Motion, Thaw, Stem Cells, User, Continuous.

The Barkey plasmatherm C&G also stands for sustainability. The product does not require any additional consumables. In accordance with the latest quality standards, the Barkey plasmatherm C&G is manufactured according to ISO 13485 standards. The Barkey plasmatherm C&G is also FDA 510 (k) cleared.
