Research and development at Sanquin

Within all divisions of Sanquin, research relating to blood transfusion medicine and immunology in the broadest sense is performed by a dedicated research staff.

All departments have their own focus and research lines. Furthermore, research is performed in close collaboration with Sanquin's other divisions.

Most divisions also have their own department for product- and process development.
