Haemonetics Expands Its Blood Management Product Portfolio with Acquisition of SEBRA Business Unit
Date:9/8/2009

BRAINTREE, Mass. and TUCSON, Ariz., Sept. 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Haemonetics Corporation, a global blood management solutions company, and Engineering and Research Associates Inc. (known as "SEBRA(R)"), a leading provider of blood and medical manufacturing technologies, announced today that Haemonetics has acquired the assets of SEBRA's blood collection and processing business for $12.5 million cash. The acquisition is expected to close within the next several weeks.

Haemonetics helps hospitals and blood collectors to improve patient care and lower costs by optimizing the collection, processing, and use of scarce blood resources. The Company's broad product offering includes blood collection and separation technologies, surgical blood salvage systems, information technology platforms, and consulting services that better manage the blood supply chain through improved blood management practices.

  • Whole Blood Collection Devices (Shakers) -- Shaker devices rock blood units throughout the donation to facilitate proper mixing of an anticoagulant, included in the blood bag, and the donated blood. Proper mixing of anticoagulant and blood ensures that the red cells won't clot. (Red cell clotting during filtration is a major reason for blood discards.) SEBRA's shaker devices also weigh blood units during collection to ensure that the right amount
