Discovery Never Stops

We share a passion for thinking in new and different ways. Our natural curiosity brings us closer to unlocking the potential of blood, transforming scientific understanding into practical application.

To make the most of our significant research and development investment, we are committed to close collaboration internally, across departments and regions, and with our customers. We also work with thought leaders and industry associations to develop innovations and apply them to our products and services. Our work and commitment to open dialogue help connect investigators to each other and to additional resources. When a breakthrough happens, we are on hand to help bring awareness, lending our expertise and guidance to investigators as they seek publication of their studies.

This approach furthers scientific understanding and leads to more treatment options for patients.

In line with our commitment to corporate responsibility, Terumo BCT provides both financial support and products to charitable efforts in our areas of therapeutic focus that contribute to social, economic and environmental well-being.


Therapeutic Plasma Exchange Innovation Award 2019
Terumo BCT will award one USD $100,000 grant to the winning site, chosen by an external, global committee of key opinion leaders. This year, the award focuses on innovative applications of TPE for IgG4-mediated disease, specifically by advancing patient care and producing novel clinical results.

Advancing Apheresis Award
Together with our customers, we are advancing apheresis to benefit the patients we all ultimately serve. This award provides an annual educational grant of USD $10,000 to the applicant that best displays a dedication to advancing apheresis.

As a way of recognizing and honoring the efforts of apheresis professionals, clinicians, cellular therapy manufacturers and others who further the practice of apheresis and patient care, Terumo BCT is pleased to announce the 2019 Advancing Apheresis Award: Advancing Peripheral Venous Access Through Ultrasound-Guided or Infrared-Guided Cannulation.
