To guarantee a ready supply of blood components for all of Catalonia, the Banc de Sang i Teixits (Blood and Tissue Bank) implements a system of whole blood process control, from the initial moment of donation to the final step, transfusion. This is what is known as a "vein-to-vein" approach.
Including transfusion in our service is a groundbreaking concept without parallel in any other European blood bank.
Our solid presence in the region, thanks to a network of centres located at Catalonia's leading hospitals, allows us to work closely with and be accessible to donors, doctors and treatment centres.
This structure makes it possible to organise donation drives, distribute products and provide services more effectively and efficiently.
