About Us

The IBTS Tissue Establishment license was obtained in January 2008 for Cardiovascular, Ocular and other products. The Tissue Bank is also a HPRA authorised Good Manufacturing Product (GMP) site for the manufacture of allogeneic Serum Eye Drops. The tissue bank now supplies a broad range of tissues for surgical and therapeutic use across Ireland including musculoskeletal tissue, serum eye-drops and allogeneic skin for treatment of burns.

The European Directive 2004/23/EC and its technical annexes ensure a high standard of quality and safety is maintained in all Tissue Bank activities. This applies to the donation, procurement, testing, processing, preservation, storage and distribution of all tissues.
