The Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion in Prague represents a unique connection of six research departments, four hospital wards and a highly above-standard specialized blood transfusion department. It has been fulfilling successfully the role of a highly specialized therapeutic facility and super-consulting site. At present, IHBT Prague has 509 employees. The clinical departments deal with the diagnostics and therapy of patients suffering from both malign and benign haematological diseases. They perform, for example, haematopoietic stem cells transplantations, therapy of patients with both acute and chronic leukaemia and myelodysplastic syndrome, therapy of patients with acquired, congenital, bleeding and thrombophilic conditions, and an intense haematological care.

The Institute of Haematology and Blood Transfusion participates significantly in educational activities as well. In addition to providing the Master’s education in cooperation with Charles University in Prague, First Faculty of Medicine, IHBT has been serving as a training centre for professional post-graduate education in cooperation with the Institute of Post-Graduate Education in Health Care and the Institute of Chemical Technology in Prague and contributes significantly to the scientific post-graduate education. At the beginning of this year, BMT succeeded in the tender for a steam sterilizer delivery to this prestigious institute.

Another steam sterilizer Sterivap HP 636-1 ED was installed this May at the Cell Physiology Department, which thus followed our past deliveries like the steam sterilizer for solutions sterilization Sterivap HP 669-1 ED , hot-air sterilizer STERICELL 55 etc.

The importance of this reference is still increased by the fact that, among others, four National Reference Laboratories (NRLs) have been working in IHBT Prague, namely the NRL for Human Papillomavirus, NRL for Coagulation, NRL for Immunohaematology. The Institute includes also the Calibration Centre IHBT at NRL for DNA Diagnostics and the accredited NRL for DNA Diagnostics.
