QualityStocks would like to highlight BIO-key International, Inc. (OTCBB: BKYI), The company develops and delivers advanced identification solutions to commercial and government enterprises, integrators, and custom application developers. BIO-key’s award winning, high performance, scalable, cost-effective and easy-to-deploy biometric finger identification technology accurately identifies and authenticates users of wireless and enterprise applications. Their solutions are used in local embedded OEM products as well as some of the world’s largest identification deployments to improve security, guarantee identity, and help reduce identity theft. BIO-key’s technology is offered directly or by market leading partners around the world.

In the company’s news,

BIO-key International has announced that Suncoast Communities Blood Bank (SCBB) has successfully launched the company’s TruDonor donor search and identification solution, providing the security and convenience of automated positive donor identification at all SCBB donor centers. SCBB received a grant from the Venice Endowment Fund through the Gulf Coast Community Foundation in support of purchasing the new fingerprint donor identification system.

The new donor identification system from BIO-key will allow SCBB to more efficiently search for and positively identify blood donors, at the same time enabling the detection and prevention of duplicate donor records, the protection of donor privacy, and the elimination of errors associated with manual registration. A certified green business, SCBB provides state-of-the-art transfusion medical services and serves thousands of patients each year through its support of dozens of hospitals and clinics. Implementing BIO-key’s innovation will not only ensure a safer blood supply, but it will also allow SCBB to continue doing its part to protect and preserve the environment through reducing the use of paper products.

“We are excited to add Suncoast Communities Blood Banks to our growing family of blood center customers,” said BIO-key Vice President of Strategy and Business Development Jim Sullivan. “By utilizing BIO-key to automate donor enrollment and check-in, Suncoast will detect duplicate donor records before they are created while reducing donor check-in to a two-second process at the registration desk. The reaction of donors and staff has been incredibly positive, as increased donor convenience benefits the entire organization. Instead of trying to determine who a donor is, staff are free to focus on making the donor’s experience a more positive one.”

BIO-key’s technology is currently being utilized by six blood centers, and the company has issued more than 3 million donor ID licenses. The implementation by SCBB is a further indication that the company’s finger biometric technology is becoming the preferred authentication and identification option for patient, donor, and customer access.

“We can say with confidence that the BIO-key family of blood centers, transfusion facilities and hospitals will continue to grow, as the security and convenience provided by our biometrics in eliminating cards and passwords enhances the identification experience for donors and staff,” said BIO-key CEO Mike DePasquale.
