Haier Biomedical Combats Covid-19 by Supporting Frontline Medical and Scientific Research with Haier Biobank
early 2020, the novel coronavirus has been spreading at an
unprecedent speed. Central government, local governments, enterprises
and individuals have all declared “war” on Covid-19. To win this
war, we not only need actions of the whole of society, but also
scientific support. As part of the scientific support, Haier Biobank
solutions are “on duty” 24/7 doing frontline medical and
scientific research during the epidemic.
Biobank combines cryogenic storage and IoT management systems to
provide real-time interactions between human, machines and samples.
Users can access the sample information with one touch on the screen.
Haier Biobank safely manages all samples and provides data conversion
and value-added scientific research services by connecting to the
bio-sample co-sharing platform. Moreover, Haier Biobank can monitor
the storage temperature and equipment status, alert about abnormal
operations and meet users’ needs in terms of precise location,
accurate review and fast re-organizing. Haier Biobank has reinvented
the sample management by improving the accuracy and efficiency of
sample retrieval and storage.
Jinyintan Hospital (formerly the Wuhan Medical Rescue Center) is a
public health medical base with a history of over 100 years. It’s
also the first designated Covid-19 prevention hospital in Wuhan.
During the epidemic, the hospital set up a biobank, which adopted
Haier Biobank solutions. Cryogenic storage equipment is used to
“hibernate” viruses at a constant temperature.
with hydrogen inverter refrigeration technology used in smart IoT
cloud-chip cryogenic refrigerators, Haier Biobank can operate with
lower power consumption and noise emission, maintain a uniform
temperature within the cabinet and provide a stable environment for
sample storage. The dual-system design also ensures a safe operation
of the biobank. Haier Biobank solutions include smart IoT functions
to monitor the virus status at all times. Medical staff can have
access to the refrigerator status, alert records and event logs, etc.
on their mobile APP. The biobank is connected to the Haier BIMS
sample management system, which can pinpoint the location of the
sample and verify sample retrieval /storage via code scanning.
Biobank at Wuhan
than in hospitals, Haier Biobank also plays a vital role in frontline
scientific research: on 20thJanuary, dozens of virus samples were delivered to China Virus
Resources, Wuhan Institute of Virology, CAS and Haier Biobank for
testing and research. On 21stJanuary, Haier Biomedical delivered and installed three units of IoT
cryogenic equipment at the Guangzhou Institute of Respiratory
Diseases to assist Zhong Nanshan, member of CAE, and his team in
studying the novel coronavirus samples. Over 20 cryogenic
refrigerators as well as Haier Biobank solutions were also deployed
to the Chinese Academy of Medical Sciences. Experts there were
working on the virus around the clock. Haier Biomedical has
efficiently improved the collection, storage, management and
full-process quality control of clinical samples.
the number one brand in biosample storage in China, Haier Biomedical,
with its biobank EMCs, constructs biobanks at national, hospital and
disease levels. To meet the demands of scientific researchers, Haier
iterates the full-lifecycle sample date platform of BIMS, constructs
a biosample value-added service platform and has removed the barriers
of information sharing in the industry. Haier Biobank solutions
integrate the process management, data collection and information
sharing of samples and cover all categories, scenarios and
