Share

Biolog-id LLC, a developer of end-to-end blood safety solutions and a leader in connected health solutions, announced today that it’s expanding its partnership with University of Cincinnati’s Hoxworth Blood Center to include the management of Red Blood Cell Concentrates, the most commonly requested blood product, in its cutting-edge technology ecosystem across its enterprise.

The expanded partnership, aimed at improving the lives of patients requiring transfusions, leverages Biolog-id patented technology within Hoxworth facilities. The technology, Biolog-Transfusion®, tracks blood products throughout the supply chain, providing real-time visibility into inventory across locations, and collecting data, allowing for comprehensive analysis. This is the first expansion following the appointment of Troy Hilsenroth to CEO of Biolog-id LLC.

“I am thrilled to be expanding our partnership with Hoxworth Blood Center, a trusted organization within the industry, as we expand and grow Biolog-id’s North American presence,” said Troy L. Hilsenroth, CEO Biolog-id LLC. “With Hoxworth, we are committed to helping them achieve their vision by driving operational value and increasing clinical quality through our differentiated platform.”

Hoxworth Blood Center collects, tests, processes and distributes lifesaving blood to 31 hospitals and medical centers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana. The blood management ecosystem implemented at Hoxworth allows for the seamless addition of Red Blood Cells with a significant reduction of workload associated with the daily management of inventory and supports better data-driven decisions around the fulfilment of requests from the different hospitals.

"Our partnership with Biolog-id furthers our commitment to embracing innovative technologies to provide a reliable, safe supply of high value blood products to our patients,” said Jose A. Cancetas, Director of Hoxworth Blood Center. "The implementation of Biolog-id’s platform greatly improves the management and distribution of Platelet Concentrates and Red Blood Cell Concentrates as we look to maximize patient outcomes. We are excited for the expansion of our partnership to implement its innovative solutions across our enterprise.”

Biolog-id will be launching an additional pilot program in North America in Q4 2019 focused on the installation of its technology across another major healthcare network.

Inotrem Secures Strategic Licensing Agreement for a Companion Diagnostics Test in Septic Shock21.1.2020 07:00:00 CETPress release

Inotrem S.A., a biotechnology company specialized in the development of immunotherapies targeting the TREM-1 pathway with potential applications for acute and chronic inflammatory syndromes, announced today that it has entered a worldwide licensing agreement with Roche Diagnostics for the commercialization of a mechanism-based companion diagnostic test using a soluble plasma protein (sTREM-1). This agreement consolidates existing ties between Roche Diagnostics and Inotrem who are jointly developing since 2017 an in vitro assay for measurement of sTREM-1 in plasma samples of septic shock patients. Measurement of sTREM-1 in blood provides a valuable indicator for the severity and outcome prediction of septic shock patients. One of the main issues with septic shock is the heterogeneity of the patient population. The companion diagnostic test will allow a stratification of patients to identify those who are more likely to respond to Inotrem’s treatment. Septic shock is the ultimate complic

HD-PLC Innovates IoT World21.1.2020 01:00:00 CETPress release

In Japan, the High-definition Power Line Communication (HD-PLC) technology has been mostly used in PLC adapters and communication equipment so far. One major reason was the interpretation of the “Ministerial Order to Provide Technical Standards for Electrical Appliances and Materials” which applied to the integration of HD-PLC into home electric appliances and housing equipment. Recently, the efforts of the involved parties have been rewarded by the Notice issued on December 25, 2019 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) that partially revised the interpretation of the Ministerial Order. HD-PLC can now be integrated in home appliances and housing equipment. The main advantages of HD-PLC over wireless technologies include an easy setup of communication networks, a high level of security, and low power consumption. Additionally, HD-PLC can be used on power lines, coaxial cables, telephone lines, and other existing lines which not only enables the deployment of networks in
