We closely collaborate with many different care providers and care professionals, academic and peripheral hospitals, specialist tissue processors and other (international) tissue institutions and tissue banks, transplantation centres, laboratories and other organisations, not only in the Netherlands but also in Europe and beyond.

Our individual divisions also work closely with physicians in the field and with patient associations. By working together, we can optimise the tissue chain, both nationally and internationally, and improve availability of scarce compatible tissues in the interest of patient wellbeing.
