Non-profit Multi-Tissue Center
ETB-BISLIFE Foundation came into existence on 1 January 2018 as the result of a merger between Leiden-based BISLIFE and Euro Tissue Bank in Beverwijk, creating one large-scale Multi-Tissue Centre. 

As a non-profit organisation, ETB-BISLIFE also fulfils a mediating role aimed at the reliable acquisition and distribution of scarce human tissues for transplantation purposes in the Netherlands and Europe.


Passing on, Improving life
Our mission is to process and make available donated tissue, with respect for the donor, in such a way as to meet the highest quality standards and safety criteria in order to save the life of the recipient and improve his or her quality of life.

Furthermore, we see it as our responsibility to continuously improve and innovate for the future in order to maintain a leading position and thereby continue to contribute to a better quality of life.

To fulfil our mission, we engage in the following activities:

  • Storage and state-of-the-art processing of bone and tendon tissue, skin, hearts and ocular tissue, either in-house or through third parties.
  • Supplying available tissue to the most suitable recipients.
  • Supporting research aimed at validating and improving the results of the transplant of relevant human tissue.
