Partnering in your fight against COVID-19

COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has been affecting our lives in ways we could not have foreseen. Healthcare providers are overwhelmed and working non-stop to cope with a high influx of patients. Laboratories are processing increasing numbers of tests. Researchers are ramping up efforts to find a vaccine. And we are more determined than ever to support you!

As the world is battling against the spread of the new coronavirus, health care professionals critically need medical devices that meet the highest standards of safety and quality. These include storage and transport solutions used in testing laboratories, pharmaceutical companies, and blood establishments.

Innovating reliable technologies that help save lives has been our mission over the past 40 years. Today, we are partnering in your fight against COVID-19 on multiple fronts:

While we do everything possible to satisfy your controlled storage and transportation needs in this unprecedented situation, keeping our employees safe was our first priority. To that end, we have taken specific measures to minimize the risk of infection and therefore ensure the health of our staff, their families, friends, and the community at large.

“We are humbled by our employees who go the extra mile to help you defeat the new coronavirus. Without their flexibility, dedication, and sense of responsibility, we would not be able to process your orders in a timely manner”, Luc Provost, CEO.

We currently have ample stock in our central warehouse in Luxembourg, as well as in our US warehouse in Indianapolis.

Reliable solutions to your storage and transportation needs

Our portfolio addresses a wide variety of temperature and storage needs. All models are certified medical devices Class I or II according to MDD 93/42/EEC and FDA 21 CFR.

From their collection to the laboratory, clinical specimens of suspected COVID-19 patients must be handled with the greatest care. B Medical Systems can help store and ship all of your samples in compliance with the WHO guidelines (white paper on the recommended temperatures).

The accuracy and reproducibility of your research results highly depend on the quality of your biological samples. You can trust B Medical Systems in protecting the integrity of your biospecimens and ensuring safe storage conditions monitored 24/7. °B Connected, our remote monitoring solution that generates electronic records, meets the technical controls of 21 CFR Part 11 regulation, thereby providing you with an extra layer of assurance for FDA submissions (white paper about the applicability of the regulation to the temperature monitoring systems).

From donor to receiver, whole blood and blood components need to be maintained at the exact right temperatures: slight deviations may deteriorate the quality and safety of your blood supply. While the world is looking at a rapid increase of the serum-based antibody testing and the use/research around convalescent plasma, the need for blood cold chain integrity is intensifying more than ever. B Medical Systems ensures both a complete traceability of your blood supply, as well as accurate temperature control (white paper on blood cold chain requirements during COVID-19 / white paper on temperature requirements for convalescent plasma / infographic on convalescent plasma therapy). Our blood solutions are medical devices Class II and AABB standards-compliant*.

In order to meet future research purposes, biological samples donated by the healthy and the infected must be stored and transported in conditions that adhere to the highest standards. B Medical Systems’ cooling systems rely on green cooling systems developed as a result of 40 years of experience in medical refrigeration.

Health officials and drug manufacturers are indicating that a vaccine is about 12-18 months away. Once proven safe and efficient, there is high chance that pharmacies will have to store significant stock. B Medical Systems offers safe storage solutions of net volume ranging from 45l to 763l (1.6 to 26.9 cu. ft.). The models are equipped with a lightweight glass door for better visibility of the contents.

As most vaccines are temperature-sensitive, the success of immunization campaigns highly depends on the cold chain. B Medical Systems has been working with ministries of health and global organizations across the world to arm health workers with the appropriate equipment they need to give access to safe and efficient vaccines to all, including to the most remote communities. Our cold chain innovations are also designed for the harshest environment. They are resistant to power fluctuations, powered by solar energy, remotely monitored and WHO PQS-certified.
