Weight Calibration Tolerance +/- 1%
Draw Volume Accuracy: +/- 1%*

LCD DISPLAY DIMENSIONS

5.1 X 1.5 inches (13 x 3.8 centimeters)

POWER

Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery
Up to 220 draws on one battery charge

WEIGHT

Mixer: 3.5 lbs. (1.6 kg)
Floor Stand: 5 lbs. (2.3 kg)

OPERATING ENVIRONMENT

Typical operating temperature should be between 50°F (10°C) and 90°F (32°C).

Typical operating Relative Humidity should be between 10% and 90%.

STORAGE ENVIRONMENT

Avoid storing the HemoFlow in a location where the temperature is lower than -4°F (-20°C) or higher than 130°F (55°C) and humidity levels lower than 10% or higher than 90% Relative Humidity.  For long term storage the HemoFlow should be stored at room temperature, charged to approximately 30% to 50% of capacity. It is recommended that HemoFlow be charged about twice per year to prevent over discharge.  For storage over 6 months it is recommended that the main power switch be turned off.

Smaller, faster, better, safer 

Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center took a step to ensure greater donor safety in November 2012, when the Mobile Collections department found a need to replace the traditional trip scale used to measure the weight of blood as it is drawn. The goal was to maximize efficiency while considering mobile settings where space is a premium. 

 

A cross-functional project team spent 14 months performing extensive research, validation and training before the 3.5-pound HemoFlow 400XS was implemented in early January 2014. Though the device was originally intended for use with mobile drives, Neighborhood Donor Center managers recognized its effectiveness for fixed donation sites as well. Feedback from our staff indicates that the 400XS is safe and easy to use. 

 

Perhaps the 400XS’s most useful feature is how it takes variable blood volume into account, potentially reducing reactions while maximizing collections. The technician can input the donor’s weight, height and gender, and the device will automatically clamp the tubing once the optimal amount of blood has been collected. This prevents overdraws and reduces quantity not sufficient units while maximizing collections. In addition, the bag tray shakes itself to mix blood with anticoagulant, freeing the technician to focus on other aspects of donor safety. 

 

Haemonetics, the product’s distributor, cited that our implementation was the largest and most organized to date. The purchase of approximately 150 HF 400XS units has solidified The Blood Center’s position as an industry leader in the Gulf Coast region.
