Unveiling a Secure, Convenient Solution to Identify Blood Bank Donors
WALL, N.J., March 27 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BIO-key International, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: BKYI), a leader in finger-based biometric identification and wireless public safety, is a proud sponsor at the spring 2008 AABB Conference being held in Orlando, Florida. The AABB, an international association formerly known as the American Association of Blood Banks, has members in 80 countries. In the US alone, there are more than 175 million people eligible to donate blood. Nearly 2,000 institutions -- including community and hospital blood banks, hospital transfusion services and laboratories -- and about 8,000 individuals are members of the AABB. The conference will be held on Friday, March 28 and Saturday, March 29 at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel & Spa in Orlando, Florida.
Last month, BIO-key announced that the Indiana Blood Center is implementing BIO-key's fingerprint identification technology to positively identify their donors at check-in without the need to present other forms of identity. At the conference, BIO-key will be demonstrating their biometric identification solution which can be implemented into any new or existing application to conveniently and positively establish a person's identity.
"This solution not only streamlines the donor check-in process, but also protects donor privacy and significantly improves the blood inventory integrity. Organizations now have a secure, convenient and cost effective alternative to the more costly, error prone and time consuming traditional methods of establishing a donor's identity," commented Mike DePasquale, CEO of BIO-key International. "BIO-key's superior flexibility and accuracy provides organizations with a real competitive advantage that is a win-win for both the donor and the staff responsible for deploying and supporting the donor check-in process."
