The most important device is the automated blood collection system. It is necessary to collect platelets, plasma and red blood cells from the donor’s blood. These components are needed daily for the treatment of Kostroma residents, doctors say. With the arrival of new equipment, the speed of attention to donors has multiplied by one and a half times.

“Now donors are more comfortable with the new equipment, especially during thrombocytopheresis, the process of collecting platelets. Recently, there have been many more donors. They call and ask to come in groups. Therefore, with the new equipment we will be able to accept to more people, since all procedures include a general blood test, which donors must take before donating blood, it will be done faster,” said the acting director of the regional blood transfusion station, Evgeniy Motylev.

Another important acquisition is a hematology analyzer. In less than a minute, the device performs a general blood test using 35 parameters: it estimates the number of platelets, red blood cells and leukocytes. The procedure is necessary for admission to the donation.

The automatic enzyme immunoassay analyzer is also a new product that can quickly detect diseases such as hepatitis, HIV and syphilis in the blood. It can process more than 120 samples at the same time.

“The last upgrade of our equipment was carried out in 2008. Of course, we are very happy to have received the new equipment. It works much faster,” said Irina Koroleva, head of the clinical diagnostic laboratory.

As experts say, if before only four donors could donate blood at a time, now the station can receive seven people at a time.
