Nya tillämpningar av Antrad Medicals upptiningsteknik : Klinik- och laboratorietillämpningar (Swedish)
Abstract [en]

Antrad Medical has developed an ultra-fast blood plasma thawing device named UFT100. The method is based on thawing with an oscillating electrical field and unlike water baths it is a dry method. Fast and homogeneous thawing is achieved. This project investigates new possible applications where this thawing technology could be used within the clinical and laboratory segment. The aim was to identify existing thawing and heating methods for a substance that can be improved and potentially replaced with the UFT100.


Data has been collected through literature research and interviews with Antrad Medical and specialists working in Sweden. The specialists are working within the clinical and laboratory field. A number of criteria for establishment of the UFT100 were set up and used as a tool for evaluation.


The substances investigated during this project were infusion medicine, embryos, substance in a sampling tube, protein based pharmaceuticals, stem cells for transplantation and research, biobank sampling tubes, cryoprecipitate, human hepatocytes, live vaccines, API, BDS, intermediate and antibodies. Two applications within the clinical area are found probable, stem cells and cryoprecipitate. Further investigation for human hepatocytes, API, BDS, intermediate and pharmaceuticals is needed.

Abstract [sv]

Antrad Medical har utvecklat en ultra-snabb blodplasmaupptinare kallad UFT100. Det är till skillnad från vattenbad en torr metod baserad på upptining med hjälp av oscillerande elektriska fält. Genom detta uppnås snabb och homogen upptining. Detta projekt undersöker nya möjliga kliniska- och laboratorietillämpningar för upptiningstekniken. Målet var att identifiera substanser vars nuvarande upptining- och uppvärmningsteknik kan förbättras och kanske ersättas med UFT100.

Data har samlats in genom litteratursökning och genom intervjuer med Antrad Medical och specialister som arbetar i Sverige. Specialisterna arbetar inom kliniska områden och laboratorieverksamheter. Ett antal kriterier för etablering av UFT100 sattes upp och användes för utvärdering.

Substanserna som undersöktes under projektets gång var infusionsmedicin, embryon, innehåll i ett provrör, proteinbaserade läkemedel, stamceller för transplantation och forskning, biobank-provrör, kryoprecipitat, humana hepatocyter, levande vaccin, aktiva substanser, läkemedelssubstanser, intermediat och antikroppar. Två tillämpningar inom det kliniska området ses som möjliga, stamceller och kryoprecipitat. Humana hepatocyter, aktiva substanser, läkemedelssubstanser och intermediat behöver undersökas vidare.
