The eLynx is a handheld data collection system intended for use on the donor floor. It paperlessly captures data and temporarily serves as a data storage system. It improves donor floor operations because it reduces the need for paperwork in plasma centers and blood banks combined. It helps to make sure that standard precedures are followed during operations and in turn works to reduce errors and strengthen compliance efforts. The eLynx system prides itself on optimizing workflow. This can lead to an improved data collection process, a reduction in transcription errors and an increase in safety.
