The Blood Center of New Orleans is the latest community blood center to embrace biolog-id’s technology. The Blood Center will deploy biolog-id’s solution to support the manufacturing and distribution of two key blood components – platelets and antigen-negative red blood cells. 


ATLANTA, GA (June 21, 2021) – Biolog-id LLC, a developer and service provider of connected healthcare solutions, announced today its partnership with The Blood Center of New Orleans. Biolog-id’s cutting-edge technology will provide digital visibility to all platelet types in accordance with the new FDA bacterial risk control guidance. The biolog-id solution will support operational, distribution and planning decisions across the entire

lifecycle of these strategically important products. The use of the biolog-id solution for the rare red blood cells inventory will streamline the management of this complex inventory, facilitating better internal cooperation and optimizing the fulfilment of customer orders. 

“We are firm believers in leveraging technology to improve the efficiency, quality, and safety of the blood supply,” said Billy Weales, President & CEO at The Blood Center. “Our cooperation with biolog-id allows us to achieve these goals with two of our most critical blood components – platelets and rare red blood cells.”
