Smart-Max Protocol – Thaw-SC

The Thaw-SC protocol software is an integral part of the Smart-Max system and provides a fully-automated method for thawing of umbilical cord blood, allowing a safe, reproducible
and tightly controlled procedure.

Thaw-SC is a protocol designed to thaw volume reduced cord blood units in a closed and controlled environment, without the use of water or any additional solutions. A data storage
and transfer function allows the traceability of each unique unit.

Step-by- Step Workflow

  1. Installation of unit on the device’s baseplate
  2. Enter user-selectable parameters (dynamic and static thawing) and traceability
    • Static thawing: First phase of the procedure aimed at thawing cellular product contained in the cryobag until it reaches an icy slushy state.
    • Dynamic thawing: Second phase of the procedure aimed at completing the thawing process of the unit and ensuring a uniform product temperature.
  3. Automated thawing
  4. End of thawing
