Tube strippers are devices that sample and/or perform quality control on blood bags in a non-destructive manner.
The blood tube stripper is a “plier-like” tool designed to extract undiluted blood from donor tubing using PVC blood tubing. The blood bag tube stripper is simple to operate and extremely comfortable to use. Due to the screw mechanism that allows adjusting the distance between the rollers, it can be used with various sizes of blood bag tubes.
Its lightweight design makes it extremely comfortable to use on a daily basis and makes it resistant to falls. With self-centric rollers, the body is made of stainless steel and anti-rust materials. The stripper comes with a spring for the automatic return slot as well as a blade for cutting the tubes.
When To Use Blood Tube Strippers
Blood tube strippers are frequently used to crossmatch red blood cell concentrations with patients. The segment you create should then represent the blood bag’s overall content.
You can transfer the content of the tube to perform tests or make samples by stripping it of its contents. The blood tube stripper tool can also be used to remove air or liquid from rubber tubes.
These tube strippers are commonly used in the following applications:
- blood banks
- plasma centers
- transfusion labs
A blood tube stripper is a must-have tool for those who work in blood banks, hospitals, or laboratories. The following are some of the reasons why a blood stripper is a must-have in laboratories and other medical settings:
Easy to operate.
Blood tube strippers can be used with either the right or left hand. This makes stripping blood bag tubes safer and easier. However, when handling tubes, users will not have to worry about fluid leaks or spills.
Stripping time is reduced.
There are times when blood tube stripping must be completed quickly, especially when blood mass collection from multiple donors is required. This is a typical scenario in medical outreach programs, blood donation drives, off-site activities (field work).
Anticoagulation is aided (of blood as well as other body fluids).
Coagulation is common in bodily fluids. This is especially true when it is extracted and placed in a container such as a blood bag. Coagulation can be avoided by vacuum sealing the bag and stripping the tubes back to their original state.
It is thought to be ideal for blood bag systems.
Specifications for blood bag systems vary. A blood tube stripper can accommodate a variety of features without requiring the use of different parts or catering to specific blood bag types.
