Blood Diagnostics, Inc. Offers Customers Convenience of Access to Electronic Pedigrees

IRMO, SC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 15, 2006 -- Blood Diagnostics, Inc., one of the leading distributors of plasma-derived and recombinant pharmaceutical products, has announced that regulatory-compliant electronic pedigrees are now available to customers. Pedigrees certify the supply chain channel a medication has followed from the manufacturer to the point of dispensing. They are required by law in several states, and legislation is pending in others.

The e-pedigree system allows customers to view pedigrees in a secure, online environment or download them for electronic storage, offering them access to critical information with the convenience of paperless information management.

"Our migration to an electronic pedigree format has added value to our services by allowing us to streamline and automate our pedigree process from end to end," says Toby Selix, Chief Information Officer of Blood Diagnostics. "This same information is easily uploaded to our trading partners' systems for their own pedigree and supply-chain book keeping."

"We are pleased to offer customers the convenience of e-pedigrees as they work to comply with drug pedigree legislation," says Richard Gaton, president of Blood Diagnostics. "Investment in technology such as e-pedigrees reinforces our commitment to providing the best in customer service."
