Component Development Laboratory

An essential part of the blood supply chain

The Component Development Laboratory is part of NHS Blood and Transplant’s internationally recognised research and development programme.

We specialise in translational research that changes the way blood is processed, stored or tested. Through this, we improve the quality, safety and efficiency of the blood supply chain.

We work with internal groups within NHS Blood and Transplant, as well as academic and commercial partners.
