Services: Blood Transfusion Service

Blood transfusion service (BTS) tests and matches blood and blood products for patient transfusions across many hospital specialties (such as surgery, hemophilia). Our BTS is recognized for excellence in service, education and research. Using state-of the-art equipment, the BTS performs a variety of assays, including blood grouping, antibody investigation, compatibility testing between donor and recipient. We also provide therapeutic apheresis and, in addition to a focus on platelet immunobiology research, we are strong advocates for blood conservation and alternatives to transfusion.
