HaemoScan is an independent research laboratory and testing facility specialized in blood compatibility and organ and tissue damage. Furthermore, we are specialized in (safety) testing of medical devices and new drug candidates that come into contact with blood. HaemoScan acts as a bridge between high-tech development in fundamental science and the need for support in characterizing and under-standing the (pre)clinical outcome of external and internal influences on the human body. We offer highly specialized experience in laboratory work and clinical trial support. We develop new methods and design new test kits based on these methods.


Haemoscan aspires efficiency and flexibility and distinguishes itself by offering more than standard testing. We think along with our clients to improve further development.
