Who We Are
100+ years of experience
Innovative Blood Resources brings our partners more than 100 years of combined blood industry experience. We provide comprehensive product and service capabilities focusing on value-driven solutions for patients, hospitals, physicians, researchers, and other health care partners.
Blood Services are delivered through Minnesota-based Memorial Blood Centers, and Nebraska Community Blood Bank, located in Lincoln. These locally-operated blood banks have a shared vision to be the best blood centers in America.
The foundation for IBR Biomedical Services grew from the nationally-recognized research and clinical trial contributions of Memorial Blood Centers’ physicians and clinicians in blood banking and transfusion services. We are now making those capabilities available to researchers, offering our expertise in the areas of cellular therapy, clinical trial support, as well as regulatory and quality systems consulting.
