January brings the closing of the holiday season, new resolutions, and blood supply shortages. During the winter months, inclement weather makes it more difficult to hold blood drives in many areas of the country. Cold and flu season also make people less likely to donate blood. National Blood Donor Month was established more than 50 years ago to bring awareness to this time of critical need and encourage and honor donors. The ongoing pandemic has led to even greater demand as the national blood supply has continued to dip.
In addition to securing donors, hospitals, blood transfusion centers, and blood banks must ensure the continued safety of collected and stored blood. B Medical Systems is a global manufacturer and distributor of medical device-grade blood management solutions with over four decades of experience. We are the only company offering end-to-end product solutions certified by the EU MDR, US FDA, and WHO PQS worldwide. In addition, our partnership with Blood Centers of America allows BCA members, at their discretion, to take advantage of special pricing and terms pre-negotiated by BCA for B Medical Systems’ medical refrigeration and transport products and solutions.
