Manifest Blood Bag

iF concept design award 2013

Blood transfusions should always be handled with great care. Any error or lack of attention could result in the death or unexpected infection of the patient. It is also extremely important to ensure that the blood bag being used contains the correct blood type. This blood bag has been designed with antibody and antigen technology on a test strip, which is attached to the inside of the bag. When the blood is filled into the bag, the interior layer of the test strip reacts accordingly to clearly indicate the blood type of A, B, O, or AB on the package. This allows the medical staff to make the right selection quickly and easily.

It is our pleasure to know our design was selected as one of the Top 100 iF concept award. We hope this concept of manifest blood bag will be contributed to reduce the risk of mismatched blood transfusion and improve better medical care.
