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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
