Hemcheck Sweden AB has signed an agreement with Capio S:t Göran’s hospital regarding delivery of readers and one-time disposables (v-Test) for usage at the emergency department. After the successful clinical study that was performed at the emergency department earlier in the year, Capio S:t Göran has decided to resume the usage of the solution in the beginning of January 2021. The goal is to evaluate Hemcheck’s solution at a larger scale and to reduce the frequency of hemolyzed blood samples reaching the central laboratory from the emergency department, thereby improving for patients, staff and the hospital. The agreement will approximately imply revenues of ca 100 000 SEK per month.
–The agreement is very important for several reasons and a very good proof of the attractiveness of our solution. It will imply the first broader usage of our solution in an emergency department to handle the issue of hemolyzed blood samples. We very much look forward to continue cooperating with Capio S:t Göran, which has a very good and strong focus on quality, says Joen Averstad, CEO of Hemcheck.
