The ACP®215 automated cell processor provides a safe, simple way to freeze, thaw, and wash red blood cells. Red cells are glycerolized, deglycerolized, and washed in a closed disposable system and automatically re-suspended in additive solution to permit extended product storage post washing. It is a self-controlled and automated process with an integrated shaker for proper mixing of red cells/solutions for glycerolization and deglycerolization, and an integrated printer to record each procedure on a summary sheet. The ACP 215 device comes with sterile disposable kits to help decrease the risk of bacterial contamination, as well as 14-day extended storage for deglycerolization.
The ACP 215 is intended to glycerolize and deglycerolize red blood cells derived from whole blood that have been stored in any approved anticoagulant/additive solution for up to 6 days at 1-6°C prior to glycerolization.
Red blood cells, derived from whole blood collections and non-leukoreduced, that have been collected and stored in CPDA-1, glycerolized using the ACP 215 and frozen at -80°C, and deglycerolized using the ACP 215 and stored in Haemonetics AS-3 at 1-6°C may be labeled for extended storage for 14 days.
In addition, red blood cells that have been collected and stored in CPD/AS-1 or CP2D/AS-3, leukoreduced, glycerolized using the ACP 215, frozen at -65°C or colder, deglycerolized by the ACP 215, and stored in Haemonetics AS-3 at 1-6°C maybe be labeled for extended storage for 14 days.
