Barkey GmbH & Co. KG

Barkey is a German family business for medical technology in the field of warming devices. Founded in 1980 by Volker Barkey, Thomas and Christian Barkey together with Armin Nowack and the entire staff have led the company to worldwide awareness in the hospital and blood bank sector as well as in cell & gene therapy research.


Barkey has two main goals: Preventing hypothermia and advancing Cell & Gene research to develop new cancer therapies. For this purpose, Barkey produces various solutions for warming or thawing blood, blood products and cellular materials, infusion solutions, etc. The safety of the samples, the user and, of course, the patient is of priority. Barkey relies exclusively on dry heating systems since the use of open water baths offers a high risk of contamination. This must be avoided both, during the preparation of patient treatment and during the research and production of new therapeutic procedures.
