HTM Division

Hematology and Transfusion Medicine

Providing safe, adequate, affordable and accessible blood and blood components is the guiding principle of this division.

The Hematology and Transfusion Medicine consist of four sections: Hematology, Serology, Blood Bank  and Blood Donor Recruitment Section. The division performs collection of blood from volunteer donors, screening tests for blood donors, and hematologic tests for patients. Apheresis procedures for both patients and donors are also done in this division.

Hematology and Blood Bank sections are designated as the National Reference Laboratory by the Department of Health. The Hematology section provides external quality assurance programs to all laboratories in the Philippines. The Blood Bank section evaluates blood bank reagents prior to registration at the Bureau of Food and Drug Administration. Training of medical and paramedical professionals in basic blood banking procedures is a continuous commitment of the division to the development of health services in the Philippines.
