Blood Bank Technology Schools and Colleges

Blood bank technology specialists, also know as Specialist in Blood Bank Technology (SBBs), are required to complete a bachelor's degree in biology, microbiology, chemistry, organic chemistry, or other related physical science or biology field.

After successfully completing a bachelor's degree candidates must complete a specialized one-year training program in blood bank technology or a master's degree in immunohematology. Students will learn how to collect and separate blood (processes referred to as serological techniques and apheresis techniques) and how to detect viral diseases and antigens.

While not mandatory, some companies require SBBs to receive state licensure and pass a certification exam administered by the American Society of Clinical Pathologists and meet continuin education requirements.
