Clinically proven media technology significantly reduces the risk of leucocyte associated
transfusion complications such as microaggregates, alloimmunisation, febrile reactions,
refractoriness to platelets, Cytomegalovirus and immunosuppression.
Ease of use has been significantly enhanced by the new filter design which provides:
Priming by gravity or rapid priming by squeezing the blood bag
Unique self levelling drip chamber allowing self priming of the filter and drip chamber
New vented spike design to allow upstream of filter to drain following transfusion,
maximising red cell recovery
Dependably and efficiently delivers low leucocyte residuals, affording the maximum
patient protection against leucocyte related transfusion complications
(consistently averaging less than 2 x 105
/unit for buffy coat poor red cells).*
Primes directly with red cells quickly and conveniently without the need for
priming with saline.
High technology filtration media and minimal filter hold-up volume (31 mL after recovery)
provides minimal loss of red cells without the need for saline flushing.
Unique housing design allows maximum use of the filter media surface area for
