CTBS Anniversary Recognition

The AATB offers a certification program for tissue banking personnel who want to become Certified Tissue Bank Specialists. The CTBS Examination tests candidates’ knowledge in different areas of tissue banking, such as donor eligibility determination, tissue recovery, and quality control. To maintain their certification, individuals must complete regular continuing education sessions and remain up to date on the latest tissue banking practices and standards.

The AATB would like to recognize the following individuals on their 20th and 25th CTBS anniversaries. Please join us in congratulating each of these individuals for their impressive commitment to tissue banking excellence!
