Grifols Erytra

The Erytra is a fully automated, high throughput, and high-capacity instrument that performs pre-transfusion compatibility tests using gel technology. This instrument’s excellent self-organizing capacity optimally performs all the different steps needed for typing blood groups and identifying unexpected antibodies.

This instrument is an industry-leading automated solution that is optimized to quickly and efficiently carry out blood compatibility tests. Due to its multi-drawer system design, the Erytra is capable of autonomously analyzing 400 DG Gel cards in 4 hours, meaning that you can walk away from this instrument and focus on other tasks. Its touch screen interface is simple to navigate and requires little training for laboratory staff.
