Blood management solutions vendor Haemonetics announced this morning that it will acquire Global Med Technologies for $60 million in an all-cash tender offer.

Brian Concannon, president and CEO of Haemonetics, said, "Efficient blood management is now being recognized as a critical component of improving clinical care while reducing cost, and Haemonetics is the only company positioned to address the needs of both the blood collection and transfusion markets.  Software is a key enabler for blood management, enhancing productivity, regulatory compliance and quality.  Global Med’s software offerings are a strategic complement to our existing products and will allow us to offer customers an end-to-end software solution for blood management, from donor recruitment to the patient transfusion."

Global Med’s companies include Wyndgate Technologies (donor center and transfusion systems), eDonor (donor relationship management), Hemo-Net (application service provider), PeopleMed (software validation services) and Inlog (donor, transfusion, and LIS technologies for European customers).
