Cold LinkBlood product temperature monitoring for hospitals & blood banks.
Blood products are an essential resource for hospitals, that are not easily obtained and have stringent storage requirements. Most blood products are not tracked after being removed from the blood bank. This results in wasted blood (up to a quarter million dollars’ worth in a single hospital per year) and a lack of traceability. Coldlink is a smart cooler that automatically tracks the usage of blood products throughout the hospital while ensuring they are always maintained at the proper temperature. We helped Coldlink construct a fully functional system prototype for clinical trials at Stanford Hospital.
