    Tubestrip – blood bag tube stripper

    What if you can take something as simple as an analogue blood bag tube stripper and bring it to the future – and back to our present time?

    The product developers at Conroy Medical did something similar, and the world got Tubestrip – our fully automatic and cordless tube stripper. The advantages include:

    • long battery life
    • easy to use
    • ergonomic
    • safe.

    A blood bag stripper

    Tubestrip is Conroy’s highly effective non-destructive technique to sample and/or to perform quality control of blood bags, by milling/stripping the tube of its content. The Tubestrip can be used for cross-matching red blood cell-concentrates with patients. The segment of the blood bag should then represent the overall content of the bag.

    Tubestrip is safe and easy to use as it stops automatically when blocked or when the blood bag is detected.

    The use of a blood tube stripper

    During the procedure, the tube is emptied of its content, with no damage to the blood inside of it. The blood tube stripper being cordless, with a battery module, makes the process significantly easier.

    Tubestrip offers improved safety and ergonomics

    When making tube segments using a tube stripper, it is important that the tube is not damaged in any way, and also that the hemolysis levels in the remaining RBC component are well below the guidelines of what is acceptable.

    Tests conclude in other words that the automatic tube stripper Tubestrip is not causing more hemolysis than a manual tube stripper does.

    The fully automatic system makes it user friendly. Even the user that has never performed the tube stripping procedure of blood bags before, will be able to use the Tubestrip, with an accurate result. The process is standardized and offers a satisfactory outcome every time.

    The automatic Tubestrip offers many advantages:

    • The Tubestrip does not require an experienced user to perform the stripping procedure, which is the case with manual tube stripping.
    • To operate the Tubestrip does not imply repetitive work, like operating a manual tube stripper does.
    • Tubestrip provides better ergonomics for the user and thereby contributes to a better work environment.
    • Different types and sizes of tubes up to 6.2mm outer diameter can be used.
    • There are 5 different stripping speeds.
    • The blood bag stripper is complete with inbuilt rollers.
    • The front cover of the Tubestripper can be easily removed for cleaning.
