A doctor at JCRC operates the Leukapheresis Machine that makes the red blood cell exchange process faster and less frequent.

JCRC has acquired a new Apheresis machine, an industry-leading therapeutic apheresis, cell processing and cell collection platform that allows operators to spend more time focusing on patient care. This advanced system uses continuous-flow centrifugation and optical detection technology, providing operators the ability to perform a wide variety of apheresis procedures on a single platform.

The device can be used in treatment of Sickle Cell disease and makes the Red Blood Cell exchange faster and less frequent.

This is the only one of its kind in Uganda.
