SAHARA-III Basic Model


Created as the superior alternative to traditional water baths, the SAHARA-III eliminates the risk of contamination from waterborne pathogens through active drying of the storage bag surface. The temperatures of the heating plate and circulating air are adjusted so an equivalent blood-product quality can be achieved in comparison to water-bath procedures. This feature-loaded Heating Plate has an intuitive, easy-to-use design and can simultaneously warm different blood products and storage bags with different filling quantities.
