We help your apheresis network maintain high-quality collections

The successful manufacture of your autologous cell or gene therapy relies on high-quality starting material. So you need an apheresis network that can provide it consistently on an ongoing basis. And do so while maintaining regulatory compliance.

Our Collection Network Management solution can give you peace of mind that your autologous apheresis network will deliver. And that issues will be resolved if they arise.

Our experience in collection network management extends to allogeneic cell therapies, too. Collection Center Network Management is included as part of our Allogeneic Cell Sourcing service.

“There are great partners out there who can provide the support and training necessary to minimize the burden on apheresis centers. NMDP BioTherapies is an example of an organization that has taken the lead and is efficiently building and managing these networks.”
