Case study:
The Australian public Pathology agency, NSW Health Pathology, is using RFID technology in Liverpool hospital, near Sydney, to track the entire process of blood products from storage cabinets to use.

Liverpool hospital in Australia USES RFID technology to track blood products
(the SpaceCode smart refrigerator has an RFID reader built in to identify the time and personnel to remove or return blood bags.)
Liverpool hospital has 23 operating rooms and 877 beds. NSW Health Pathology also operates a blood bank to store blood and related products (plasma and coagulants) in the hospital.
Under the scheme, a locked SpaceCode smart refrigerator was installed in the hospital's operating room to identify RFID blood products stored inside. The system can help ensure blood supplies to the right patients.
Before performing surgery that requires a blood transfusion, the staff will take the required blood disease to the operating room in a smart refrigerator waiting to be used. When used, employees remove them from the refrigerator for blood transfusions. If blood is not used, it is returned to the refrigerator for storage. The next day, the unused blood is sent back to the blood bank for storage.
The blood storage temperature is usually 2-6 degrees Celsius, and the maximum temperature cannot exceed 10 degrees Celsius.
Tony Greenfield, chief scientist at the hospital's blood bank, said: "we need to ensure that the blood returned from the blood bank can be used safely and require that the cold chain has relevant storage records."
Normally, blood removed for less than 30 minutes is considered safe, while blood removed for more than 30 minutes is considered unsafe and needs to be discarded. Before deploying the RFID project, the hospital placed a register on the refrigerator for tracking.
"Unfortunately, manual tracking is not reliable," Greenfield says. Records are often incomplete. The blood should be discarded when the record is incomplete."

NSW began using RFID technology in December 2013, marking about 1,000 products a year.
Blood products sent to the operating room are tagged with an RFID tag. In this way, the company saves labor time and label costs.
Each employee handed out an employee card with an embedded RFID chip. Chip ID number and personnel information are bound to each other. When employees complete the training, Greenfield will activate the authorization to allow employees to use the RFID system.
When blood is needed in the operating room, the hospital first contacts the blood bank and selects blood products with appropriate blood types. These are achieved through the blood bank information system.
When blood bank employees take out blood, they attach the RFID label to the blood bag and bind relevant information on the background software.
After scanning the label with an RFID reader, the blood bags are sent to the operating room. Operating room staff used the ID badge to open the RFID refrigerator and store the blood bank in the refrigerator. When blood is needed, the refrigerator prompts the employee to enter the patient's medical record number for confirmation. The employee then scans the employee card to unlock it. When the refrigerator is closed, the built-in reader reads the label, confirms the removal of the blood bag information and creates the record. If the wrong blood bag is removed, the user receives a warning.

If the blood is not used, the employee returns it to the refrigerator. The software will determine when it has moved out. Blood that has not been removed for more than 30 minutes will be returned to the blood bank refrigerator.
With the RFID system, blood Banks can now ensure that returned blood can be used safely.
