Haemonetics is a healthcare company dedicated to providing blood management solutions to customers. The Company�s portfolio of integrated devices, information management, and consulting services offers blood management solutions. The Company serves in three markets, such as manufacturers of plasma derived pharmaceuticals, blood collectors, and hospitals.

Human plasma is collected and processed by bio-pharmaceutical companies into therapeutic and diagnostic products. The blood donations produce blood products for transfusion to surgical, trauma, or chronically ill patients. Loss of blood is common in many surgical procedures, including open heart, trauma, transplant, vascular, and orthopedic procedures, and the need for transfusion of oxygen-carrying red cells to make up for lost blood volume.
