PARIS: After a public consultation, biolog-id, a global service provider of connected healthcare solutions, through its local partner ATC, has been awarded by the Ministry of Health to deploy Biolog Transfusion Solution in Kuwait Central Blood Bank (KCBB), the national blood bank operator.
Over the years, KCBB has reached a very high scientific level and has acquired a well-deserved reputation for the quality of its blood supply chain. In the Middle East region, this institution is recognized as a leading institution for the quality of its blood supply processes and as an early adopter of leading-edge innovation. On the international stage, the KCBB has also been a pioneer in the AABB (American Association of Blood Banks) accreditation and is for long a member and significant contributor to the ISBT’s (International Society of Blood Transfusion) recommendations.
While the COVID-19 pandemic has challenged the transfusion supply chain, KCBB has chosen to adopt the cutting-edge technology Biolog Transfusion Solution to better drive its operations. Based on RFID, this modular solution combines tags, equipment, and software to offer accurate visibility on blood products throughout the transfusion chain. Designed for healthcare professionals, the solution will support KCBB to enhance GMPs and safety for all processed blood units (Red Blood Cells, Platelets & Plasma).
“We are very honored that KCBB relies on our technology to optimize its processes and its blood distribution tracking”, states Philippe Jacquet, Executive Director of Sales EMEA/LATAM at biolog-id. “This major achievement has been facilitated by our partner in Kuwait, Advanced Technology Company (ATC), who has been instrumental in the management of this project and who will coordinate the implementation of our solution”.
“ATC is very pleased and honored to have been awarded for this project, which will be the first implementation of the state-of-the-art Biolog Transfusion Solution at the prestigious Kuwait Central Blood Bank and its branches. This implementation will definitively be a millstone in the midst of continuous improvement of blood supply safety and blood processing in Kuwait” said M. Mahmoud Chehime, Director – Specialty Diagnostics & LS at ATC.
Biolog Transfusion Solution will be deployed in the Kuwait Central Blood Bank as well as three distant Blood Banks. This implementation will strengthen biolog-id’s presence in the Middle East region, already installed in Egypt and Saudi Arabia.
