We recently installed a Kryo 560-16 controlled rate freezer at the Clinicas Hospital in Paraguay, South America. The Oncohematology Pediatric department, led by Sonia Gini, will be using our unit to freeze peripheral blood. The blood cells are separated into various components such as: white blood cells, platelets and plasma using an apheresis machine.
The team from Chaco international, our new distributor in Paraguay, was trained on site whilst the controlled rate freezer was being installed. Their plan is to use the Planer Kryo 560 in the Clinicas Hospital as a ‘Showroom’ for other clinics and hospitals.
