Who we are.

Quotient Biodiagnostics is focused on providing high quality, high value immunohematology products to hospitals and blood banks in the US. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Alba Bioscience, Quotient offers more than 30 years of research, development and manufacturing of transfusion diagnostics products that traditionally have been sold worldwide either directly or by other major transfusion companies.

How it all began.

Quotient's research subsidiary, Alba, was originally established in Scotland in the 1940s as part of the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service, to manufacture blood typing reagents. In addition to supplying its products throughout the Scottish National Health System, the company grew and expanded its offerings as an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) supplier to the worlds leading transfusion diagnostics companies. In 2007, it was privatized and became part of Quotient Biodiagnostics.

Moving forward.

Today, Quotient Biodiagnostics has one of the most advanced FDA-licensed manufacturing plants in the industry, and continues its tradition of quality and technical excellence, as evidenced by a range of accreditation, including ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 Quality Certification.  With state-of the art logistics and U.S. warehousing, customers consistently receive shipments as ordered and on time.
