Kuwait Blood Transfusion Administration Services Choose to Deploy Biolog-id’s Solution to Optimize Blood Components Value-Chain
Paris, France (June 20th, 2022) – Blood Transfusion Administration Services (BTAS), Kuwait, has selected Biolog-id and its local partner, Advanced Technology Company (ATC), to implement the Biolog-id Transfusion solution for all blood components: Red Blood Cells, Platelets and Plasma.
Over the last few months, and under the supervision of Dr Reem Al-Radwan*, Director of BTAS, Biolog-id and ATC have started to implement the Biolog-id Transfusion solution, with the ultimate objective of a nationwide deployment across this Emirate.
The first phase of implementation is in its final stage and will give all blood donation branches (Kuwait Central Blood Bank (KCBB), Shaikha Salwa cord blood centre and Adan blood centre), and seven remote locations (including mobile collection buses) under the umbrella of the system.
The main objective, through RFID technology, is to impact three application areas: global real time inventory visibility and management across several centers, guarantee blood products integrity during their processing and transportation.
“We are very pleased of BTAS strategic decision to implement Biolog-id Transfusion Solution, aiming at a leading edge mastery of their so vital blood component resources” said Philippe Jacquet, Executive Director of Sales EMEA/LATAM at Biolog-id. “The success of this implementation is a testament to our close partnership with Advanced Technology Company (ATC) and to their commitment to support this major project.”
BTAS, Biolog-id and ATC are currently defining the plans for the second phase designed to expand visibility to blood components across both the entire blood components value-chain and the Emirate.
