Purecell® RC High Efficiency Leucocyte Removal Filter for Blood Transfusion of 1 Unit (EU)

  • Clinically proven media technology
  • For standard or rapid flow applications
  • Easy prime technology
  • Enhanced ease of use 
  • High efficiency leucocyte removal
  • High red cell recovery
  • Minimal filter hold-up volume
  • Rapid priming without saline
  • Bedside filtration of one unit of red cells

Benefits

  • Clinically proven media technology protects the patient against transfusion associated complications such as microaggregates, Cytomegalovirus, immunosuppression and alloimmunisation*.
  • Ease of use has been significantly enhanced by the new filter design which provides:
    • Priming by gravity or rapid priming by squeezing the blood bag. 
    • New vented spike design to allow upstream of filter to drain following transfusion, maximising red cell recovery.
    • Unique self levelling drip chamber allowing self priming of the filter and drip chamber.
  • For standard or rapid flow applications. Higher flow rates can be achieved with a pressure cuff (up to 300 mmHg).
  • Dependably and efficiently delivers low leucocyte residuals, affording the maximum patient protection against leucocyte related transfusion complications (consistently averaging less than 5 x 105/unit for buffy coat rich red cells and 2 x 105/unit for buffy coat poor red cells)*.
  • Primes directly with red cells quickly and conveniently without the need for priming with saline.
  • High technology filtration media and minimal filter hold-up volume (20 mL after recovery) provides minimal loss of red cells without the need for saline flushing.
  • Unique housing design allows maximum use of the filter media surface area for consistent results.
