SEATTLE, WA – October 19, 2015 – Blood Bank Computer Systems (BBCS) today announced that through an agreement with Macopharma USA (Macopharma), BBCS has certified the MacoMix HM20 blood monitor, mixer and data management device in its entirety and confirms compatibility with the BBCS Primary Application and ABO Wheels.
“We are very pleased to be able to offer this seamless service to blood centers. BBCS is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to further developments with them. MacoMix HM20 users will now be able to achieve their objectives quickly, efficiently, and within budget,” says Yariv Sivan, President and CEO of Macopharma.
The Vendor Certification Program allows vendors to have their devices used for blood collection certified for use with BBCS products. In order to achieve certification, BBCS performs custom testing between both devices to verify accurate data transmission. Once the device has been certified, clients are then able to use the device with the BBCS application knowing that they have been tested and verified to operate with one another.
“BBCS is proud to have joined forces with Macopharma to provide blood centers a seamless integration between the MacoMix HM20 and their BBCS BECS,” says Brian Forbis, Vice President of BBCS.
To see the MacoMix HM20 interfaced with the BBCS Primary Application and ABO Wheels in action, visit booth #687 and #691 at the 2015 AABB Annual Meeting.
