Shanghai Blood Center is considered as one of the biggest blood supplier points in China, and the most critical one nationwide. With 25 million people living in Shanghai, the city is the commercial center of China. It is of great importance that the blood supply is sufficient and of good quality. In order to guarantee this quality, Shanghai Blood Center uses nine VebaBoxes.
Blood transfusions play a vital role in many life-saving medical treatments. In 1988 Shanghai Blood Center became a partner of WTO as blood supplier. Shanghai Blood Center is responsible for the blood supply for more than 160 hospitals in the city of Shanghai and for collecting and supplying blood for several sub towns. One single blood donation contributes to saving up to three lives. Therefore, it is important to establish a reliable blood cold chain that protect the performance of blood. This is possible with the VebaBox that Shanghai Blood Center uses for blood transport in the city area.
After more than 50 years of development, Shanghai Blood Center is now the only blood collecting and supplying facility in the urban area of Shanghai that has the function of blood collecting, blood preparing, blood supplying, research and education. In order to limit any risks harming the quality of the blood (which can have serious consequences for its usage) temperature controlled transport is crucial. The VebaBox ensures that the blood is transported at the desired temperature of 35°F / 2°C to 46°C / 8°C. The VebaBox cools/heats even when the engine of the vehicle is not running. With the cool solutions provided by Vebabox, Shanghai Blood Center always guarantees the quality of blood during transportation and on site.
