A Successful Scotblood

Lorne Laboratories - a specialist manufacturer of blood grouping reagents and diagnostic test kits
It was a real pleasure to attend Scotblood 2012. Stirling University played host to the conference and the weather was better than most had hoped. I managed to speak to so many advocates of the Lorne brand and hopefully some future customers too.

I managed to have a chat with some of the speakers at this year’s conference too. I was particularly impressed to meet Carol Mitchell, who works for the Canadian Blood Service and had come over to speak about her specialism, youth recruitment for blood donation. She added an international flavour to what is a regional affair, although I did chat to a number of other delegates from outside of Scotland, including some from my native Belfast and one or two from south of the borders (Ireland & England).

It was also great to hear from so many delegates about their satisfaction with Lorne products. Lorne prides itself on producing high quality stable wet reagents, with a long shelf life and all at a competitive price. It was wonderful to hear how many of the delegates trust our blood group reagents and kits, and choose Lorne rather than other manufacturers of diagnostic test kits and reagents. That’s what makes attending these exhibitions and conferences such a pleasure: lots of compliments for us with the complaints reserved for some of our competitors.

Next stop is BBTS in Harrogate at the end of September. We look forward to seeing you there.
