For the blood industry we can offer mappings of blood banks and storage units in a variety of forms.
- On site mapping
- Mapping kits
- Bespoke mapping service
For on site mapping we provide the complete service from initial development of a suitable protocol through the physical on site mapping work to the delivery of a professional printed report.
The final reports include all the information required by the applicable directives along with recommendations where needed.
We can also offer a follow up mapping service using the same protocol to allow continued use of the storage unit should the mapping report indicate any un-servicable areas in the storage unit.
With mapping kits the mapping hardware is simply shipped to the customer in the form of a complete set of data loggers which have been preconfigured for the type of cabinet which is to be mapped.
The kit includes a printed protocol and diagrams to allow the customer to place and retrieve the loggers which are then shipped back to us.
A report is then generated as described above.

For any customer specific requirements that do not fit into either of the above categories we offer a bespoke mapping service where we tailor the mapping work to ideally suit the needs of the customer.
