The plasma thawer is a specially-designed device that makes use of a microprocessor temperature regulator in maintaining water baths at appropriate plasma-thawing temperatures of 30 to 37 degrees Celsius.
It consists of two stainless steel baskets designed to hold a total of four bags of plasma at one time. The device can be set to carry out 0 to 60-minute cycles and is also equipped with audio and visual alarm systems. Designed to hold close to 5 gallons of water, the plasma thawer is the ideal equipment for thawing procedures. It also comes with overwrap bags for holding plasma units and a thermometer for keeping track of temperatures.
