Immunohematology is commonly referred to as blood banking, the area of laboratory medicine that ensures appropriate and compatible components for blood transfusions.

Ortho is the market leader in immunohematology, having pioneered life-impacting advances, from their earliest work in blood typing to the latest developments in laboratory systems. Ortho’s blood typing products help ensure every patient receives blood that is safe, the right type, and the right unit.

Every 2 seconds someone needs blood. We work to make the transfusion process safer and more efficient from donor to recipient with innovative donor screening solutions and continually evolving transfusion medicine automation. So you can help more patients in need of lifesaving blood—and help to keep them safer.



A blood banker’s job is critical, yet labs face growing pressure to find new efficiencies and do more with less. The ORTHO VISION® Analyzer was developed to meet the unique needs of immunohematology labs through the proprietary benefits of Responsive Automation. This analyzer not only raises the bar in transfusion medicine—it redefines it.


ORTHO AutoVue® Innova System

No matter how quickly you need to produce results or how much pressure you have to control costs, you know that no margin of error is acceptable in a blood bank. We designed the ORTHO AutoVue® Innova System to comprehensively address safety—from helping to reduce the potential for human error through increased automation and ease of use to increasing accuracy with dozens of additional process checks. So you can be ready to meet your toughest challenges with full confidence in the safety of your results.

Traditional Reagents

Gain exceptional results with our full line of traditional reagents designed for use with tube-based testing. Monoclonal antisera and antihuman globulin were pioneered by Ortho nearly 20 years ago with the proven BioClone® system of monoclonal antibodies. These reagents provide improved potency, reliability, economy, and safety over polyclonal reagents.


Antibody Identification Software

Antibody identification is one of your lab’s most complex tasks. ORTHO RESOLVIGEN™ is expert software that supports expertise in your lab by providing information and guidance to help enable your lab personnel to evaluate results and make informed decisions.
