The Pall BDS gives us a unique and cost-effective way to address the long-standing problem of bacterial contamination of platelets.
Since our center operates in a decentralized manner with multiple processing and distribution sites, the Pall BDS, enables us to test platelets for bacterial contamination in our operating environment.
Studies have shown that the Pall BDS detects the strains of bacteria reported to cause more than 98 percent of the fatalities resulting from the transfusion of contaminated platelets.

This also reflects BDS and our positive outlook for rising demand for steel detailing services.
