"Our current fiscal year 2013 is a landmark year in which we completed the largest acquisition in our company's history, the whole blood collection, filtration and processing business from Pall Corporation.  Subsequently, we have integrated it seamlessly with no interruption to customer needs", said Mr. Concannon.  "We also remain on track for the introduction of the first element of automation into that market later in fiscal 2013, in the form of paperless phlebotomy.  At the same time, we made considerable advances in blood management solutions for our customers. In this regard, we prepared for the first half of fiscal 2014 introduction of our recently approved OrthoPAT Advance device into the hospital market and our investments in emerging markets have boosted our TEG and Cell Saver ® Elite ® penetration there as well." 

Whole Blood Acquisition Integration Since the August 1, 2012 completion of the Whole Blood acquisition, 17 internal cross-functional integration teams have pursued all elements of integration to ensure that critical business functions including IT, supply chain, quality and regulatory compliance to name a few continued effectively.  The integration effort is ahead of schedule and is expected to be substantially completed by the end of fiscal 2013.

Paperless Phlebotomy For Whole Blood Collection The company has previously revealed plans to introduce its paperless phlebotomy product offering into the whole blood market, which is the first phase of their Automated Whole Blood product launch.  This consists initially of a software platform that allows collection of donation data at the chair side using a wireless hand-held/tablet device, followed by a communications tower permitting wireless connectivity in even the most difficult blood collection locations, and required connectivity software.  The paperless phlebotomy product is the first of three product launch phases that collectively facilitate the ability to automate the process of collecting whole blood.  FDA clearance of the paperless phlebotomy offering and limited market release to an identified U.S. blood center customer are expected to occur by the end of Q4 of fiscal 2013 as anticipated.
