Plasma Thawing Systems

QuickThaw™ Plasma Thawing Systems use both controlled temperature and agitation to substantially reduce thaw times while ensuring the safety of your plasma. Dual baskets with independent controls accommodate a variety of bag configurations, and the baskets automatically lift plasma bags out of the water when a cycle is complete. For added safety, the baskets also lift out upon high alarm activation.

The compact size of the QuickThaw conserves space on your benchtop. Both random and apheresis plasma bags may be thawed (whether flat or folded). The QuickThaw is suitable for other applications including warming saline as well as thawing red blood cells and cryoprecipitate.
