Tissue Requests and Services
For Dutch Clinics
Corneal Tissue requests by Dutch Clinics
In order to request a corneal transplant from Amnitrans Eyebank (AER) for a transplant surgery in a Dutch clinic, patients should be registered in the database of the Dutch transplant foundation (Nederlandse Transplantatie Stichting; NTS). NTS keeps track of the waiting list. NTS will redirect the tissue request to AER. AER will offer a cornea fitting the request. If accepted, the tissue will be further processed upon request.
Amniotic Membrane Tissue Requests by Dutch Clinics
Amniotic membranes can be ordered directly from AER via the Donor Tissue Request Form.
Urgent Delivery within the Netherlands
If urgent delivery is required, please contact us by phone at 010 297 4444. For urgent delivery additional costs may be charged, to cover transportation costs by courier or taxi. Tissues can be delivered within 4 to 24 hours within the Netherlands.
For Non-Dutch Clinics
Corneal and Amniotic Membrane Tissue Requests by Foreign Clinics
For patients that will be operated on in other countries than the Netherlands, please contact AER directly by filling out the tissue request form. As soon as we have received your request, we will confirm receipt of it and look for a suitable donor tissue. (If you don’t get a confirmation on the next business day, we did not receive your request so please in that case contact us.) If an HLA-typed cornea is needed, the patient will be included in the central matching procedure for Dutch donor corneas / patients.
