capsule pipeline for bloodbag - Telecom Tube Systems

The handling of bloodbags in hospital environments

Telecom has developed high capacity capsule pipelines which are used to transfer blood samples between sampling room and laboratory. Blood samples are sent in special purpose carriers, Leak-Proof and air pressure balanced, that open and close fully automatic. In the sampling room an open carrier is always available, even shortly after sending. At the lab, empty carriers are recognized and automatically closed and sent back.

The transportation, handling and receiving of a bloodbag is one of the top priorities in medical environments such as hospitals and clinics, since blood is the fluid that keeps patients alive. If a surgeon is in need of a certain type of blood during surgery and the wrong  bag with vital fluids is delivered, this could have deadly consequences. 

In an emergency situation it is of vital importance that the bloodbag gets to its desired destination on time and in perfect condition. If the bag of blood is compromised during transport, the life of the patient hangs in the balance. Therefore, Telecom Tubesystems has developed capsule pipelines specifically designed for the transportation of  blood materials.

a capsule pipeline: How does it work?

Hospital environments are known to be dynamic, run by fast-paced personnel with the best patient care in mind. Therefore, in order to keep up with this environment, tube transportation systems need to be, as mentioned above: reliable, safe and quick. But how does the tube system work?

  1. First of all, a pneumatic tube system consists of a network of tubes connected via several stations such as transfer- or receivingstations.
  2. At these stations several carriers are made available for all hospital staff, such as doctors or nurses. These carriers can be used to send and receive bloodbags securely, efficient noiseless and above all accurate.
  3. These carriers are located at the stations, which are situated in carefully chosen, strategic locations inside the medical center, for example: the laboratory, pharmacy, surgery room or clinic.

For example: When a nurse has a bloodbag she wants to send to the doctor who is on call, two floors up. The nurse places the bag with vital fluids inside the carrier and places the carrier inside the sending station. Next, the nurse enters the desired location of the bag of blood and presses send. Now the fully automated tube system takes over: using air to transport the carrier all the way up to the 4th floor in a matter of seconds. Saving the nurse a trip to the 4th floor while minimizing the risk of contamination of the blood materials.
