ENLAKE is proud to sell a comprehensive range of Australian made blood fridges which are all TGA approved and in full compliance with Australian Standard AS 3864.1-2012.
Some of the features that make blood refrigerators unique include:
- A tighter allowable temperature range of +2°C to +6°C
- They must be able to function within an ambient temperature range of +10° C to +43° C
- The control and alarm systems must be completely independent of each other
- They must have a tamper-proof temperature recording device that can operate for a minimum of 24 hours without power
- They must have an electronic audit trail of all manual interactions such as the muting of an alarm
When it comes to the commissioning of a blood bank refrigerator, there are a few essential details to keep in mind. As per AS3864.2-2012, a blood bank fridge needs to have a spatial temperature distribution check to ensure that there are no significant temperature variations within the blood fridge. This test must be performed by a business with the relevant NATA certification. If the blood fridge is not situated in a location that is staffed 24 hours per day additional alarm notification methods will be required, such as remote alarms or SMS alerts.
