Immunohematology

Immunohematology is commonly referred to as blood banking, the area of laboratory medicine that ensures appropriate and compatible components for blood transfusions.

Ortho is the market leader in immunohematology, having pioneered life-impacting advances, from their earliest work in blood typing to the latest developments in laboratory systems. Ortho’s blood typing products help ensure every patient receives blood that is safe, the right type, and the right unit.
