The results of development of an automated device for thawing blood plasma are presented. The developed device provides highly accurate maintenance of heat transfer medium temperature and short thawing times of no more than 15 min. The device can be used in blood banks, blood transfusion stations, high-tech medical centers, and hospital and clinic blood transfusion departments.
