Study on Blood Compatibility of a Disposable Burette Transfusion Apparatus and its Pyrogen Test


Article Preview

The aim of this study is to evaluate the blood compatibility of disposable burette transfusion apparatus and provide the basis for the clinical safety of medical products. Whole blood clotting time (WBCT), prothrombin time(PT),partial prothrombin time(PTT), hemolytic rate and bacterial endotoxin were measured. The results showed that there was no significant difference between the samples and the negative control on indexes of WBCT, PT and PTT (p>0.05), hemolysis test showed that the hemolysis rate of the sample was 1.38% (less than 5%), which was coincident with the criteria of the medical devices. Endotoxin levels were lower than 0. 5 EU/ml. All of the results above suggested that the disposable burette transfusion apparatus had a good blood compatibility and no pyrogen.
