Storage and sample logistics

Sanquin is the national blood bank of The Netherlands. Consequently, reliably storing blood and immune cells is central to all our activities. We have extensive experience and expertise in collection, processing, cryopreservation and storage of immune cells.

Not only is blood collected from healthy donors, but we are also experienced in processing patients apheresis to be used for immunotherapy at the Laboratory for Cellular Therapy.

We have a long and successful history of optimizing logistics of transportation of blood and blood products (inter)nationally and updating it to the latest needs.
