Malvern Hills Science Park-based Nicholson Consulting Ltd, a consulting and engineering company specialising in blood transfusion has joined forces with Biolog-id, a global healthcare provider, to set up a demonstration lab located at Malvern Hills Science Park. This co-branded demo environment will showcase to the UK market the biolog-id’s product-line: Biolog Transfusion Solution.
Based on the RFID technology, Paris-based Biolog Transfusion Solution has been designed to respond to those involved in the blood transfusion supply chain. By combining software, equipment and tags, this innovation offers to manage in real-time each application area, from collection and manufacturing at the blood centre, central and remote inventory at the blood banks to blood compound administration at the patient’s bedside.
Gordon Nicholson, Managing Director at Nicholson Consulting Ltd, said: “We are very pleased to collaborate with biolog-id to successfully implement this project. This demonstration lab will be a real asset for our potential customers: this will not only allow them to see Biolog Transfusion Solution in real-world but also experiment and handle it.
“Beyond presenting our solutions, this demonstration laboratory will allow us to test and validate new equipment aimed at strengthening our offer. We have full confidence in our local partner who will be able to effectively manage this innovation facility, the first for biolog-id”, says Philippe Jacquet, Executive Director of Sales EMEA/LATAM at biolog-id.
In the United Kingdom, the Biolog Transfusion Solution has already been adopted by the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service (SNBTS) to efficiently manage the supply of blood products to different remote centres and communities.
