SmartStation for BloodBanks

The SmartStation is a versatile RFID scanner used by blood banks to quickly read and process small quantities of blood bags and blood plasma and platelet components placed in a defined orientation.

This state-of-the-art smart reader is equipped with an RFID antenna and can be mounted underneath or placed on top of any desk or shelf surface allowing blood bags labelled with Spacecode RFID with LED tags to be read. It is the ideal solution for fast-tracking the labor-intensive activity of blood bank tallies and stocktaking by offering rapid and reliable reading of items as they are transferred through various processing steps and personnel. The SmartStation plays a key role in the prevention of manual errors, stock loss and shortages.
