VersaLogic Computers Keep Automated Blood Collection System Flowing
Automated blood collection systems are used to collect a combination of red blood cells, platelets, and plasma from donors. These highly integrated, computerized systems minimize operator intervention, integrate key functions, and provide important data at a moment's notice, thereby enhancing the efficiency of blood center operations.
At the heart of one of the most widely used automated blood collection systems are two VersaLogic Single Board Computers (SBCs). The system relies on one VersaLogic board to perform control functions, while the other board is used as a safety computer. The state-of-the-art system uses cell separators that allow for the division of the various blood components in a high-speed centrifugal field while the device is still connected to the donor. This process allows collection of any combination of red blood cells, platelets, and plasma while returning unneeded components to the donor, thereby allowing more frequent donations. The high reliability and long-term availability of VersaLogic SBCs were key elements in the selection of the VersaLogic solution. In addition, VersaLogic accommodated customization requests that allowed communication between the CPU board, multiple peripherals, and the manufacturer’s I/O platform.
VersaLogic Single Board Computer (SBC) Offers New Level of Sophistication and Functionality in Cataract Removal Device
A global leader in the development and manufacturing of ophthalmic surgical and eye care products is using a VersaLogic embedded computer in its new high-performance cataract removal, or phacoemulsification, device. The portable device breaks the cataract into minute fragments with localized high frequency waves. This new device significantly improves the efficiency of cataract surgery.
VersaLogic's SBC helped raise the bar in the phacoemulsification technology arena. The VersaLogic SBC enables the phacoemulsification device to offer a new level of sophistication and functionality including continuous monitoring and control of conditions within the eye. In addition, VersaLogic’s commitment to product lifecycle management and guarantee of long-term availability were key factors in the manufacturer’s decision to select VersaLogic as their supplier. Most importantly, VersaLogic offers the industry-leading product reliability required for demanding applications, such as ophthalmic surgical equipment.
