Providing life-saving and life-enhancing services to patients
Therapeutic Apheresis Services
TAS has a long history of providing life-saving and life-enhancing therapeutic services to patients. The service provides over 1200 patients each year with access to a portfolio of therapies using technology that exchanges, removes, or collects certain components within the blood.
Patient Blood Management
Patient Blood Management is a multidisciplinary, evidence-based approach to optimising the care of patients who might need blood transfusion. We are working with the Department of Health and the National Blood Transfusion Committee to further support NHS Trusts to manage their blood use effectively.
Stem Cell Services
We provide a comprehensive range of services to support haemopoietic stem cell transplantation, involving collecting stem cells by apheresis and the processing and cryopreservation of stem cells. Our work includes cord blood collection and banking and the British Bone Marrow Registry.
Ovarian tissue storage
Our Cellular and Molecular Therapeutics laboratory in Southampton, in partnership with the Complete Fertility Centre at University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust, provides an ovarian tissue storage service.
