Smart Blood Bank / Refrigerator (Products)

Smart Blood Bank
Smart Blood Bank

Still, we are exposed to lots of accidents in blood-transfusion. About 35 accidents
happened for the past 4-years in South Korea.
And most of the accidents happened by “human” nurses.
As the whole process is done by human, there could be mismatch between
patient’s blood type and blood pack -which is fatal-.
SBBK, Smart Blood Bank with Blood Key System, is suggested to solve these tragic happens.
Patient’s blood type data becomes only key for getting blood pack from the blood bank.
This vending machine-like system matches patient’s blood type and blood pack, directly.
Patient’s bloody type directly matches with blood pack.
