Immunohematology, also called blood banking, is a field within the Medical Laboratory Science profession that focuses on studying human immunologic reactions as they relate to disease processes and clinical manifestations of blood disorders.The Immunohematology and Biotechnology program is offered at George Washington University.


Key facts

The clinical laboratory has traditionally used conventional methods to perform tests and assays for the purpose of aiding in human disease diagnosis. Over the years, there have been significant advances in biotechnologies. Although conventional lab methods are still utilized in the clinical laboratory, more labs are starting to integrate molecular-based tests and to replace some of the more traditional technologies with cutting edge methods.

The Immunohematology and Biotechnology program offered by George Washington University has been designed to provide certified blood bankers with a strong foundation in Immunohematology as well as molecular biology and biotechnology.
