[Pneumatic tube system for blood products transport].


Blood product transport from blood bank to the patient care areas of hospitals is a key step in the transfusion process. The pneumatic tube system is now widely used in hospitals. Strict performance specifications must be respected to guarantee blood safety: robustness, easy to use and respect the constraints imposed to blood products. To secure the disposal of blood products ordered to a carrier (delivery step), a security device must be deployed (video camera, barcode reading, fax, chip), allowing in particular to limit the risk of addressing error when sending (in the case of device with several arrival stations) or picked up by the wrong carrier.
