ZipThaw is easy to start up and use in our hospital laboratory. Training only took about ten minutes. The most important advantages for us are proper temperature documentation and that it’s dry — there’s no water needed. The device is very low maintenance and far more efficient than water systems. Simply put, ZipThaw works as advertised.
ZipThaw is a game changer for medical facilities utilizing thawed plasma. ZipThaw replaces the dreaded water bath, decreases thaw time by approximately 50% and provides rapid support to the operational environment where thawed plasma is a necessary component for saving lives. ZipThaw has changed the way we do business. We’re now able to provide a safe product in half the time. And it has a small footprint and replaces the unending maintenance of water baths. The unit is safe, simple to use and is completely automated.

I have been very satisfied with the ZipThaw thawing device. It’s a very low maintenance product, the user manual is also user friendly. It allows efficient implementation for easy validation.

We are a small, 25 bed critical access hospital. ZipThaw is great, my staff learned how to use it quickly. Not having to worry about contamination issues from a water bath is wonderful. Water baths are just a pain to deal with, including all the documentation required to maintain them. ZipThaw eliminated all these issues. Also, downloading all thawing procedures at the end of the month is great for documentation. The ZipThaw footprint is another great benefit — it doesn’t take up a lot of space.

ZipThaw is one of the easiest plasma thawing machines we have used, if not the easiest. Super simple delivery and set up. The bags make any spills a breeze to clean up or I should say, not have to clean up!
