Contact shock freezer CSF61 for blood plasma freezing

To uphold the integrity of its components, fresh plasma must be frozen. These molecules will rapidly denature if they are left at suboptimal temperatures, thus rendering the sample less effective for therapeutic use.

To guarantee enhanced throughput and superior sample quality, fresh plasma must be entirely frozen as fast as possible. Furthermore, the earlier the freezing process, the more proteins can be stabilized.

To attain the high throughput of important proteins, B Medical Systems developed the CSF61, a Contact Shock Freezer. This product has been specifically designed to fast freeze blood plasma before it is stored for extended periods of time in freezers.

With the CSF61, blood banks and transfusion centers can increase their yield, develop throughput from one load to the next, and attain the most efficient freezing times, therefore guaranteeing fresh frozen plasma that is of the best quality.

Freezing times for 30 standard 350 ml bags from ambient temperature to −30 °C are generally between 23 and 26 minutes, ensuring that the highest possible quantity of proteins and other components are securely preserved and ready to be stored in Plasma Freezers.
