Clearwater, FL- SCC Soft Computer’s blood bank product, SoftBank® II, version 23.2 received market approval from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on August 12, 2008.

SoftBank II version 23.2 was designed to have the added capability to print ISBT-compliant labels for modified blood products. The functionality of the predicate device, SoftBank II version 23.1 with Database Management System Interface, is the foundation on which the added functionality of ISBT-complaint label printing was designed.

“As decision support software devices that are highly regulated and require knowledgeable user intervention to document certain steps and events in a transfusion service environment, it is important that our blood services products keep pace with industry standards, such as the usage of ISBT labels,” said Gilbert Hakim, CEO, SCC Soft Computer. “I am confident that SoftBank will remain on the leading edge in this competitive market.”

SoftBank II is a centralized transfusion service management system that combines previous high-performance functionality with exciting new features to provide a comprehensive, cost-effective centralized testing solution. The database management system offers, fast, direct linking between records and transactions.
