CaridianBCT COBE Spectra


COBE Spectra

As the most widely used therapeutic apheresis system in the world, the COBE Spectra Apheresis System gives your facility the flexibility to deliver cell therapy and therapeutic apheresis — all on one platform.
The COBE Spectra Apheresis System is versatile, giving you procedural control to manage the specific needs of each patient. Plus, it handles all patients, from small children to adults, letting you provide therapeutic apheresis and cell collection procedures to any patient.
Customized procedures work together with automated functions to save time and resources. The process control in the system monitors pump rates, fluid balances, volumes, and AC management for enhanced safety. Sophisticated algorithms let you customize specific procedural elements based on individual patient's total blood volume, hematocrit, and platelet precount — all with minimal operator intervention. You focus on your patients — instead of the technology
