A New IV Catheter Device Featuring Automatic and Integrated Blood Sampling

31.08.2012
<strong>Technology</strong><br>

We offer a new IV catheter for the use during emergency and disasters to automatically preserve a pre-infusion blood sample from every patient.<br><br> The new catheter system is based on existing IV devices. Its new features include an integrated blood sampling reservoir that is fixed to the IV catheter

via a flexible plastic band and remains attached to the patient following selffilling with a small blood volume until admission in the hospital. In addition, identifiers are provided comprising a housing identifier at the IV catheter and a reservoir identifier. Both identifiers have codes assigned to one another. The identifier system may comprise an electronic memory medium, in particular an RFID chip or barcode that can be read out. Upon arrival, the reservoir is disconnected from the patient and immediately sent to the laboratory for blood group typing. A prototype has been produced by injection molding process.<br><br> It has been demonstrated in a prospective phase II study that the device ensures rapid and precise blood typing in 100% of emergency patients showing that the new catheter design offered a significant advantage over the standard catheter. Furthermore, the new device increases patient safety by securing this precious very first blood sample in every case in addition to the sample taken from a central line inserted inside the hospital. Thereby two independently drawn specimens are available for ABO-typing even in circumstances with extreme time constraints.<br><br> <strong>Benefits</strong><br> <ul type="disc"> <li>Increased patient safety</li> <li>Rapid and precise ABO typing</li> <li>Redundant patient to blood product identification for increased general transfusion safety</li> <li>No interference with routine procedures</li> <li>Prevention of excessive use of 0 negative blood resources, thus allowing further cost reduction</li> </ul> <p><strong>IP Rights</strong><br> DE102004055989B4 and DE102009018837B4 granted<br> EP and US patent pending <br> (Priority Nov 2004) <br><br> <strong>Patent Owner</strong><br> Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
