Scientists in laboratory

We provide a wide portfolio of therapies across a broad range of clinical specialties using technology that exchanges, removes, or collects certain components within the blood.

Our facilities are regulated by the Care Quality Commission and classified as an 'acute' service. Our recent inspections report that our units are fully compliant with all standards of quality and safety inspected. We are uniquely positioned to improve the quality and efficiency of therapeutic apheresis services and aim to become the preferred supplier to the NHS.
