Blood banks face the same challenges as many other clinical laboratories, and this has shaped the direction of blood bank automation.

These challenges vary depending on geography, but almost always include increased workloads, reduced staff levels, higher costs of manual reagents, more rigorous patient safety initiatives, and tighter regulations. Furthermore, equipment and maintenance agreements can require a large initial capital outlay. While automation has become increasingly necessary in today’s immunohematology and blood bank field, acquiring automated or semi-automated equipment can still pose a challenge. 

Advantages of Safety & Productivity

Blood bank automation was introduced in the 1960s, and many modern transfusion departments have already moved to automated analysis; however, a large number of smaller laboratories and field sites still use manual methods. Tube testing has traditionally been the gold standard for ABO and Rh grouping, as well as antibody identification and crossmatching, although this is increasingly less true of modern blood banks. The disadvantages of manual analysis include labor-intensive work, reduced efficiency, repetitive processes, and a much lower safety record due to user error. Even small laboratories can benefit from automation, something that frees up technical staff for other tasks that better utilize their skills.

Advantages include:

  • Increased safety and decreased human error
  • Positive patient identification through specimen barcoding
  • Stable endpoint (not achieved with tube reactions)
  • Ability to archive results
  • Higher turnaround times due to batch testing
  • LIS interface for downloading requests and uploading results
  • Less labor-intensive
  • Traceability of reagents, staff, and samples
  • Improved objectivity and reproducibility of testing

Automatic cross-matching also offers reduced risk of incompatibility due to user error and/or incorrect labeling of specimen processing.

Ultimately, the type of analyzer that you choose depends on the testing requirements of your department and its budget. Modern automated systems for the blood bank increase throughput and efficiency while lowering safety risk to transfusion recipients and reduce the potential for human error. Molecular diagnostics may help to further improve the safety of the transfusion department when used in conjunction with routine automated methodologies. As well as carrying out a thorough evaluation of products on the market, it is extremely valuable to learn from the experience of others. Many blood bank managers have already been through the process of automating their department, and they are now in a position to use their experience to benefit others.

Improve Automation Efficiency When You Lease a Blood Bank Analyzer

Operating Lease

This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional cash savings.

Sale-Leaseback

If you recently purchased equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your instrument and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up cash in your budget rather than tying it down to the instrument.
