Thermo Fisher introduces TSB blood blank refrigerators

Available in a range of sizes, from 140L undercounter models to 1,500 L double door refrigerators, the series also includes additional features

Thermo Fisher Scientific has introduced the TSB Series of compliant and sustainable refrigerators designed specifically for the cold storage of blood and blood-related products and samples. The devices are built to comply with the Class IIa regulation 93/42/CE and come with a 12-month warranty.

Factory presets to 4°C are designed to enable all models to meet blood storage guidelines, while the use of F-gas compliant hydrocarbon green refrigerants helps limit environmental impact. Low energy consumption of all models in the series and real-time monitoring ensure low energy use and heat output, contributing to the product’s sustainability attributes. The devices also feature onboard datalogging which tracks temperatures to ensure correct storage conditions and warn users to take corrective action where necessary.

"Our new TSB Series of blood bank refrigerators is another step towards supporting laboratories’ sustainability goals without them having to compromise on quality or functionality," said Drew Buskirk, Global Product Manager, Thermo Fisher Scientific. "All models are built to the highest standards with the environment in mind and comply with strict regulations. Features including password protected electronic locks, temperature, power and door alarms, and battery back-ups in the event of power failures, all ensure a secure environment for the cold storage of blood products."

Available in a range of sizes, from 140L undercounter models to 1,500 L double door refrigerators, the series also includes additional features, including a touchscreen, extendable and adjustable drawers, and triple-pane glass doors.
