Transfuse | Transplant | Transform a life
What We Do
Immucor is a leading provider of transfusion and transplantation diagnostic products worldwide. We strive to create a world where anyone, anywhere in need of blood or transplantation gets the right blood or transplant that is safe, accessible and affordable.
- Each year, more than 4.5 million people in the U.S. alone need a blood transfusion and approximately 118 million units of blood are collected globally per the World Health Organisation.
- According to the Global Observatory on Donation and Transplantation, there were about 136,976 solid organ transplants in 2020 worldwide.
With today’s dual focus on improving health outcomes and lowering healthcare costs, preventing negative reactions through better-matched donations is the ultimate goal in transfusion and transplantation medicine.
With the right match, we can transform a life together.
