Standards & Accreditation

The AABB Accreditation program is internationally recognized as a symbol of quality, and facilities that have achieved AABB accreditation are known to provide quality products and services. AABB has been a leader in developing standards and accrediting facilities in the blood and biotherapies community since 1958.
