Glam Pack For Blood

The Sweet Donation Bag is an attempt to redesign the blood collection pouch. It features a sleeve with large cut-outs indicating the blood type (A, B, AB & O). The overall design is much more refined than the current bags in use and the packaging looks sturdy. If only the cut-outs would have indicated Type+ or Type- then I guess the impact would have been better. Slicker and tidier to look at; it won’t reduce the needle-prick pain!

      Nice rebranding & I would like to see a further analysis of the hierarchy of the information needed but it doesn't seem to consider how blood is taken in the first place. Blood isn't transfered from bag to bag – it remains in the original bag it was taken in to help reduce exposure to anything that would reduce the shelf life of the blood. This also has a lot of plastic waste as none of the packaging is able to be recycled due to it being a biohazard. Even if this was a sleeve on the existing package, you'd have the same biohazard problem.

      how are you supposed to centrifuge this bag and separate the red blood cells and the plasma? this is a great design but i do not think it offers much functionality

      looks amazing.. however, how exactly would you be able to pack it with minimal wastage of space?

      • Actually, these would pack/stack better than the bags. Think of this… ////////// That's two layers of containers right there. lay one row flat side down. Put the next row, point down, in the valleys that are made by the first row.

      plain lame. non practical. a joke of product design. shame.

      Anyone who believes this is a good idea has never worked in transfusion services! This is artistic but completely impractical! Blood is transferred sterilly into separate bags during processing into plasma and prbcs after getting centrifuged and squeezed to separate it, testing must be done before the bag is labeled with any blood type (so you can’t say it is for asthetic appeal during donation), and after transferral into a new bag for leukoreduction, you still have to be concerned about storage and hanging the blood! The pliable bags are honestly the only practical container for blood!
