How to apply if a Tissue Bank is available in your Region
If in your area there is a Tissue Bank of reference, you will need to apply to them first. They will get in touch with us in case of any tissue unavailability.
How to apply if there is NO Tissue Bank available in your Region
If in your area there is no Tissue Bank of reference, please get in touch with your Regional Transplant Centre which will recommend a Tissue Bank, or ask you for one of your choices.
What happens next
By law, you must inform us once you have implanted the tissue we provided. To do so, please fill in the “Declaration of use” form we sent you along with the tissue. We also guarantee the conservation of tissue data, following current guidelines.
If you have not used the tissue we provided, you can send it back to us with the “Declaration of non-use and good conservation” that we sent you along with the tissue.
Please apply for tissue only if you are certain of an implant on the recipient. Please note we do not accept back any tissue already opened or partially used in surgery rooms.
We care about not wasting any tissue, we confide in you helping us in this by following our instructions.
