Greatly reduced risk of infection during operations Auto-transfusion

Auto-transfusion is a procedure which allows you to use less donor blood during surgery, and drastically reduce the risk of hepatitis or HIV infection for the patient and the staff.

Low risk of HIV and hepatitis infection thanks to stable and long-lasting vacuum containers

Even during so-called routine operations, there is always a certain residual risk. One of these risks increases with the amount of blood loss in the patient: the risk of infection. Because every millilitre of blood that is donated increases the risk of patients and staff being infected with diseases such as hepatitis or HIV.

To reduce this risk and reduce the need for donor blood, a special procedure has been developed – autotransfusion. In this procedure, the blood that the patient loses during an operation is collected, processed and returned to the patient during the operation.

Every single piece of equipment must be reliable during an operation. In the best case, these devices and medical products can be used in many consecutive operations without losing quality and stability. This also applies to the vacuum container which is required for autotransfusion. This must remain usable and reliable over the long term for the safety of the patients and the staff, as well as for financial reasons.

In order to guarantee this, our tool and the material had to fulfil a number of requirements during the manufacture of the large and also uneven vacuum container made from thin-walled polycarbonate. Time and money also had to be saved during manufacture. Thanks to its experienced specialists, state-of-the-art tools and fully automatic labelling, Otto Klumpp has once again achieved project success.

Lasting safety for patients and staff with short cycle times thanks to modern injection moulding tools and fully automatic labelling.

The fully automatic labelling concept developed by Otto Klumpp makes it possible to save a tremendous amount of time and money during production. It provides consistent quality and short cycle times. Immediately after the spraying process, the scaling is applied in the form of labels with an accuracy of 0.1 mm.
