How it works

  • Our cloud-based portal is configured down to an organization level to the exact cold-chain specifications of the blood product. We monitor all types of blood products. Whole blood, erythrocytes, platelets and plasma.
  • By using a handheld device, eg a mobile phone - or a generic bar-code reader - the blood bag is paired to the tracer and the monitoring can begin.
  • As the blood product is exposed to time and temperature, the tracer system communicates with the cloud in real time and constantly calculates the remaning shelf-life of the blood product.
  • Based on the specification of the product the tracer will give a visual indication with green or red light which tells if blood product is safe to use. In real time.
  • At any point of time the cloudbased portal offers in depth and real time analytical possibilities of the monitored blood products.


  • Immediately tells if the blood is safe to use.
  • Easy to use for untrained staff.
  • Enables geographic traceability.
  • Easy use in any logistics system.
  • Cloud based system.
  • Strong patient adherence imperative.
  • User friendly desktop and mobile. applications (iOS and Android).
  • Fully customisable medical device class IIa solution.
  • Visual indication on tracer with green or red light tells if medicine is safe to use.

Timely implementation of an item level tracing system for our hospital blood bank, which distributes about 13’000 RBCs per year. This helped us to replace a system where the support ended.


Knowing the temperature of the packed red blood cells from the moment they were sent to the blood bank has allowed us to safely recover many bags of blood.

    How the QTA Tracer continuously calculates Shelf-life in real time

    Tracer settings are configurable to meet your needs and comply with national or local regulations.

    It would be the easiest thing if blood was always stored and transported at the same temperature.
    Then you would know that blood stored at 4°C would be valid for 35 or 42 days - 1008 hours in the latter case.

    But the reality is that the blood will be exposed to many different temperatures during its lifetime.
    The QTA Tracer recalculates the "remaining shelf-life" in real-time, - adjust the expiration date - for the blood at each log.

    So if the tracer is configuredset to log every third minute, the expiration date will be adjusted every third minute.
    You don't have to guess how much life has been lost when the blood has been exposed to 14°C for two hours.
    The Tracer does that for you with accuracy, in real-time.
