Identification and monitoring solution for plasma for industrial fractionation.
For the EFS, Biolog-id’s solution means that they no longer have to perform secondary labelling and that the plasma unit sorting process is automated once they have been quarantined, all of which significantly improves production rates.
For LFB, this technology will increase efficiency when receiving and recording plasma from the French Blood Transfusion Service (EFS). The RFID receiving line installed at LFB’s Les Ulis site reads a box’s RFID tag in a matter of seconds, as well as the RFID tags of all 25 bags in the box, before they are stored in a cold room.
Contactless data transmission makes it possible to read the contents of closed boxes, thus reducing product handling to a minimum.
The RFID sorting line enables bags that are to be prepared for fractionation to be registered and tracked individually once they have been scanned, at a rate of one bag every 2 seconds.

RECEPTION LINE RFID
- Automation of the reception of frozen plasma from the Blood Centers
- Significant reduction of manual handling and of process time
- Increase in the number of usable frozen plasma bags for fractionation
SORTING LINE RFID
- Automation of manual barcode reading operations
- Reduction in labour needed at the reception stage
- Improvement of staff working conditions through reduction in time spent working at cold temperatures
“Several thousand litres of plasma are processed every week at our factory in Les Ulis, in Essonne. Not only does RFID increase productivity, it also increases efficiency and responsiveness during processing, whilst at the same time providing a robust technology for ensuring traceability. It’s a technological breakthrough that will enable LFB to better absorb business growth.”
Dr Patrick Bergeat, Deputy General Manager – Operations and Industrial Manager at LFB.

28/02/2017 - Biolog-id creates RFID portal for LFB to optimize reception of plasma for fractionation
Bernay, February 28th, 2017 In response to a request to optimize LFB’s biopharmaceutical laboratory in terms of receiving frozen plasma for fractionation, Biolog-id has designed and installed, at LFB’s Les Ulis site, an RFID portal that is a worldwide innovation for the plasma sector. This technology will improve LFB’s efficiency in receiving plasma and d - See more
13/04/2015 - Using RFID technology to ensure the traceability of French plasma for fractionation
The LFB group, Biolog-id and the French Blood Transfusion Service (Etablissement Français du Sang/EFS) have announced the introduction of an RFID traceability system developed by Biolog-id for LFB. All bags containing plasma for fractionation leaving EFS centres will henceforth incorporate RFID chips, which will facilitate their registration at LFB, the ... - See more
