Siemens along with the University of Graz, Austria have created an RFID-enabled blood monitoring system, according to AZoSensors.
The system consists of a temperature sensor, a chip and a battery. RFID labels contain information about the blood and help regulate the complete cooling series by using temperature sensors. The sensor remains in the same position throughout the entire transportation system, including the centrifuge, and is strong enough to endure centrifugal processes at 5000 times the acceleration of gravity.
Before transfusion, a reader verifies the data recorded on the chip for accuracy – documenting the complete series from the donor to the recipient.
