With the support of UNICEF and GAVI, the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunization, the Madagascar government has strengthened the cold chain of 400 hard-to-reach health centres. The solar refrigerators of the Luxembourg brand B Medical Systems will facilitate access to quality vaccines for more than 4.5 million children.
Following a thorough evaluation conducted by the American Association of Blood Banks, B Medical Systems’ blood bank refrigerators and plasma storage freezers obtained AABB’s Standards-Compliant Product Evaluation (SCoPE) recognition.
“We have been using B Medical Systems’ cooling technology for the last 10 years at least. 53 of 60 units are now in full operation, with the oldest one – installed in 2006 – still running perfectly. B Medical Systems’ technology has proven to be reliable and designed for longevity.”
Global warming is a danger for the planet but also a major threat to public health. B Medical Systems develops “green” medical solutions, which enable thousands of children to live healthy, in particular in the most remote communities that are vulnerable to rising temperatures.
This high-level event offered Luc Provost, CEO, an ideal opportunity to promote innovative and diversified medical solutions “100% made in Luxembourg” – intended to improve access to safe quality health care for all – in a country where population and region equity is a priority.
Patented and innovative technology “made in Luxembourg” shaping the future of the medical device industry
As a pioneering company, B Medical Systems stimulates innovation in the medical device industry to address unmet needs in the transport, processing and storage of temperature-sensitive materials. Its intellectual property portfolio already includes more than 100 patents and registered designs, a number that is growing every day.
From the donation to the transfusion, blood needs to be maintained within a narrow temperature range from 2°C to 6°C. At the CHU-UCL Hospital, health care providers rely on the cooling technology developed by B Medical Systems to store and transport their blood products in optimal conditions.
B Medical Systems has launched a new solution to protect vaccines against power fluctuations in countries where electricity supply is unstable. The innovative technology promises to help health centers administer safe vaccines to children at risk.
Listening to the needs of the medical world is at the heart of our strategy. In an intent to collect feedback on our new medical refrigeration solutions, we discussed with Samuel Loonus, a long-standing customer of B Medical Systems who has just acquired a laboratory freezer and validated an ultra-low freezer – two of our Premium Line models.
Continuing with its mission of saving lives, B Medical Systems has engaged in the United Nations Global Compact initiative. Our company has committed to acting responsibly in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption, as well as to delivering on the Sustainable Development Goals through innovation and collaboration.
