International Blood Group Reference Laboratory (NHSBT)

The IBGRL was established in 1946 to provide Reference Services related to blood transfusion. In 1952, the IBGRL was designated a collaborating centre for the World Health Organisation. One of IBGRL’s functions is to maintain a database of donors with rare blood types. Authorized laboratories can interrogate the International Rare Donor Panel directly via this web site. The IBGRL has a distinguished record of research in blood transfusion science. The Bristol Institute for Transfusion Sciences (BITS) was established in 1996 to bring together research and teaching at IBGRL, the Bristol Blood Centre and the University of Bristol.
