AGTF (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Transfusionsmedizinisches Fachpersonal e.V. Deutschland) is the working group for transfusion medical specialists in Germany. The association was founded in 1991 with 60 participants taking part in the first event in 1992.
This year the 28th AGTF event took place in Magdeburg with more than 400 attendees. The content aims at transfusion medical specialists (blood donation and further processing), i.e. mainly medical assistants and health nurses, but is also very suitable for young doctors who are just starting out in this field.
The AGTF includes a small industrial exhibition and our German distributors took part to promote our portfolio and were open to all concerns from a users perspective.
The Möller Medical Team (Jennifer Müller and Kevin Gelinek) supports its partners in all aspects and appreciate this event very much to collect and evaluate direct end customer feedback.
In addition, we were also able to broaden our horizons and eagerly look forward to workshop topics such as “Alternative plasticizers in blood bags; law amendment in 2021” or “The next generation of plasmapheresis”.
For an approx. 5 hours stay we took gladly a 700km drive upon ourselves and compared East German Highways to West Germans……..now you may guess which are probably better developed :-).
