Amnitrans eye banks

Amnitrans EyeBank Rotterdam (AER) is a non-profit tissue bank that provides customized tissue products for domestic and international corneal surgeons. AER’s focus is on the surgical predissection of donated human corneal tissue for use in lamellar surgical procedures.
Starting the surgical predissection in 2003 we were the first tissue bank in the world to offer this service. Amnitrans Eyebank International (AEI), the internationally oriented sister-eye bank, was founded in 2015 to supply the still growing international demand for ready-to-use-pre-dissected corneal tissue. AER and AEI have the same experienced staff and use the same techniques.
