For a second year in a row, PlatinumCode will support breast cancer research with pink products
MINNEAPOLIS, September 18, 2014 – PlatinumCode, a leading manufacturer and supplier of specimen identification, transport and collection products for the healthcare industry, announced earlier this month that they have committed to donate five percent of their profits of the sale of eligible pink products to breast cancer research. In making the announcement, PlatinumCode has launched various marketing efforts to help support the cause, including providing clinical and hospital labs with their popular “Pink Packs” of samples.
PlatinumCode has been busy packing up Pink Pack sample packs since mid-August and continues to send them on a daily basis to clinical and hospital labs. The free of charge Pink Packs contain the recipient’s choice of magenta tourniquets, pink pediatric tourniquets, pink cohesive bandage, pink nitrile gloves, and disposable pink lab coats or jackets. PlatinumCode also included a pink-ribbon retractable badge holder for hospital and clinic staff as a small gift. Pink-Packs can be requested online at www.platinumcode.us or over the phone at 888.446.9965.
“The Pink-Packs are not only a wonderful way to get our quality products in front of our customers and potential customers, but a great way to spread awareness for such a great cause.” explained Chad Falkenborg, PlatinumCode Sales Manager, “And this year – they (Pink Packs) are flying off the shelves!”
In 2013 PlatinumCode indicated record-breaking sales for the month of October from the sale of pink products, making their donation greater than anticipated. This year, PlatinumCode has a goal to nearly double their donation.
“We get really excited about supporting such a great cause and want to do everything we can to help, and what better way to spread awareness than having health care professionals use pink products?” explained Ron Griffith, PlatinumCode CRO. “We are really hoping to see a huge leap in our donation this year, and have plans to nearly double it.”
PlatinumCode has not yet indicated which charitable research organization their donation will go towards, yet plans to find an organization with a strong focus on research and more than 90 percent of their budget going towards program expenses.
PlatinumCode offers a wide range of identification, transport and collection products for the healthcare facility including specially designed labels for laboratory and hospital information systems, instrumentation media, specimen transport products, bright-colored, non-latex tourniquet bands and cohesive bandages. Headquartered in Minneapolis, with warehouse locations in Toledo, Portland and Los Angeles, PlatinumCode serves thousands of clinical laboratories, hospitals and medical centers across the United States. PlatinumCode is broadening product lines and distribution in response to customer requirements.
