Instrumentation Laboratory Awarded Premier Healthcare Alliance Contract For Hemostasis Product Line

BEDFORD, Mass., July 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Instrumentation Laboratory (IL) today announced that it has been awarded a Capital Equipment Supplier Agreement with the Premier healthcare alliance.  This is the first time Premier has signed a contract with IL for their Hemostasis product line.  IL initiated direct sales, service and support for their Hemostasis product line in North America in 2012.

The new contract for IL's Hemostasis portfolio covers Instruments, Reagents and Supplies.  This includes the ACL TOP® Family of Hemostasis Testing Systems, comprising ACL TOP 700, ACL TOP 700 CTS, ACL TOP 700 LAS, ACL TOP 500 CTS, and ACL TOP 300 CTS analyzers, as well as ACL ELITE®/ACL ELITE PRO systems, and the comprehensive and fully automated line of HemosIL® reagents.  Also offered in the contract are complementary service offerings including a dedicated quality assurance program, clinical and technical specialists and continuing education support.

"Expanding our product offering with Premier reinforces our ongoing commitment to quality patient care through a portfolio of innovative Critical Care and Hemostasis diagnostic solutions," said Brian Durkin, VP of North America Commercial Operations at IL.  "Premier strives to provide its members with the best products in order to provide optimal patient care while ensuring operational and cost efficiencies.  IL's Hemostasis portfolio, with a range of standardized analyzers and assays, is designed to increase efficiency and optimize analytical performance, and is an ideal solution for Premier members." 

For over a decade, Premier and IL have enjoyed a successful relationship with multi-year contracts for IL's Critical Care portfolio, including the GEM Premier 4000 analyzer, GEM Premier 3500 analyzer, GEM Premier 3000, complementary products, GEMweb Plus Custom Connectivity, and dedicated service and support. Throughout their long-standing contracts, IL has been awarded the prestigious Premier Supplier Performance Award numerous times for outstanding performance quality and compliance.  In addition, IL is the current recipient of Premier's Sole Source Accelerated Supply Chain Endeavor (ASCEND) Program for Critical Care products.

In June 2012, IL transitioned to providing direct sales, service, support and marketing to end-user customers in North America for their Hemostasis product line.  A multi-faceted team was developed to cover sales, technical and clinical expertise, as well as field service.   This team was reinforced by in-house customer and technical support groups.  IL now provides direct support to more than 13,000 Hemostasis laboratories around the world, solidifying their position as a leader and innovator in Hemostasis testing solutions.
