Blood Bands - Patient Identification
Typenex blood bands support patient identification by providing a third unique identifier. Below you’ll find the blood band to fit your approach.
Barcode Blood Bands for Pre-Printed Labels
The band of choice if you’re concerned about missing patient information or illegible handwriting on your blood bands. Simply place your pre-printed label on the band. A barcoded sticker is applied to the specimen tube. This barcode allows you to easily scan the blood bank ID (BBID) into your Laboratory Information System, avoiding transcription errors, and saving technician time.
Barcode Blood Bands for Handwriting
Plenty of space for handwriting patient information, and then protecting it. The large BBID makes it quick and easy to check at the bedside, and the barcoded specimen tube labels allow you to easily scan the blood bank ID (BBID) into your Laboratory Information System, avoiding transcription errors while saving technician time.
Barcode Blood Bands
Use your blood band to provide an additional unique identifier, without the need to write or apply patient information. Barcoded specimen tube labels allow you to easily scan the blood bank ID (BBID) into your Laboratory Information System, avoiding transcription errors while saving technician time.
The R3 Band allows for reattaching or resizing any Typenex Barcode Blood Band, in the event that the blood band must be cut off in preparation for surgery, or for patients with edema, for example.
FlexiBlood Bands and Forms
Designed with durability and safety in mind, the Flexi Band will last for 7 or more days, and provides a blood bank ID (BBID) in both alphanumeric and barcode form, so you can scan the BBID into your Laboratory Information System, reducing chance of transcription errors while saving technician time.
The first blood band designed specifically for transfusion patients, the Original Band offers simple prompts for handwriting patient information.
