The Department of Quality Control comprises the Quality Control Laboratory and the Blood Donation Laboratory. The unit has collaborated successfully with the Institute for Medical Microbiology and Hygiene for many years. 

Quality Control Laboratory
Head of Diagnostics: Isabella Klink

The Quality Control Laboratory ensures the quality of blood products through testing of samples both directly after preparation and at the end of their shelf life.
