DENVER, April 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Global Med Technologies, Inc. ("Global Med" or the "Company") (OTC Bulletin Board: GLOB), an international healthcare information technology company, today announced that GLI, the German division of the Company's Inlog subsidiary has licensed its EdgeBlood(TM) blood information management system and EdgeLab(TM) laboratory information system to the "Universitatsklinikum des Saarlandes - Institut fur Klinische Hamostaseologie und Transfusionsmedizin" located in Homburg, Germany.

In view of the connection between pharmaceutical and clinical aspects of transfusion medicine, EdgeBlood and EdgeLab will create a center of excellence for the University Medical Center of Saarland," stated Prof. Dr. med. Hermann Eichler of the Institute of Clinical Hemostaseology and Transfusion Medicine Homburg/University Medical Center of Saarland.
