MaxQ Makes a Difference in Stillwater Medical Center Blood Bank
STILLWATER, Okla. — MaxQ, a Stillwater cold chain packaging company, met with Stillwater Medical Center’s Blood Bank Supervisor, Debbie Anders. Anders spoke on how she has implemented MaxPlus coolers into the blood bank.
“As we moved the outpatient transfusion center across the lot, we realized that we needed a new way to transport blood products. This is when we ordered MaxQ Coolers,” Anders said. “They were a better product than I ever knew existed. We are also using MaxQ’s frozen specimen pouches to pick up frozen samples from our numerous off-site locations.”
Anders has worked in the blood bank community for over 35 years. She possesses extensive knowledge of the field and required products. Anders has worked with MaxQ for the past two years and has become a valued customer.
Logan McNeill, MaxQ Regional Sales Manager, has worked with Anders the past two years. “I love working with Debbie to help aid in saving time and caring for patients,” McNeill said. “Our comprehensive suite of solutions for blood bankers including our MaxPlus Alpha cooler with integrated temperature monitoring, MTP cooler, EMT cooler (for helicopters and ambulatory care) and OR coolers provide consistent performance to drastically reduce blood wastage and limit packout time.”
When asked what she values about working with MaxQ, Anders said, “They have a great product and are constantly working to make it better. When I need something, staff comes right over. The in person customer service is great! They have been a great asset to us.”
To conclude the interview, MaxQ staff asked Anders what advice she has for the blood bank community.
“Our field is continually evolving and it is important to be on the lookout for new and improved ways to do our job as we strive to improve healthcare,” Anders said.
