ElDorado Donor blood management system receives US FDA 510(k) clearance

Wyndgate Technologies : 18 February, 2008  (New Product)
The US Food and Drug Administration has granted 510(k) clearance for ElDorado Donor a new blood management product produced by the Wyndgate Technologies division of Global Med Technologies, which paves the way for the company to start marketing the product in the USA.
The ElDorado Donor release is the company's next generation software and is intended as a comprehensive blood management software application created to provide for the information system needs of blood bank and donor centres.

The software is designed to manage, automate, and control activities associated with donors, donor collections, testing, manufacturing, inventory, and distribution.

ElDorado Donor was developed with scalability in mind and is designed to manage the system needs of diverse facilities, from small hospital blood banks to community blood centres, to regional and national centres. The release marks a new growth opportunity for the company both domestically and internationally.

Utilising an integrated modular configuration, ElDorado Donor is intended to offer functionality with flexibility to tailor features within the system to a facility's specific needs supporting process control from collection to distribution. The software was created for ease-of-use which includes drop down lists and easy access ‘find’ forms. Wyndgate's At-a-Glance bars provide visual indications of the presence of relevant information offering quick and easy access to that information. ElDorado Donor is designed to support the industry standard for labelling (ISBT128), as well as the ABC Codabar blood product labelling standard.

ElDorado Donor includes safety checks for blood components, blood products, and other related supply items. Safety checks are performed throughout the system as part of the normal processing of donors, blood components, and other blood products. ElDorado Donor can provide extensive manufacturing controls that can be tailored for a specific site depending on its processes.

The blood management software was designed with guidance from Wyndgate's Technology Work Group, comprised of leading industry representatives from around the world. Throughout the ElDorado Donor development process, the Technology Work Group contributions assisted the Company in delivering a feature-rich and user-friendly solution.

Thomas F Marcinek, president and chief operating officer, commented, 'We are delighted that ElDorado Donor has received FDA clearance for marketing. The Company has made a serious commitment to our customers by continuing to invest in innovations which help them meet their business and regulatory needs.'
'Global Med is dedicated to providing solutions and services that help support and protect the public's health. We value the trust that our customers place in us, and their continued efforts to improve the safety of the blood supply. We believe that the introduction of ElDorado Donor brings us closer to our goal of becoming the world leader in blood management software and services.'
