The development of the Immunohematology in the Institute of Hematology and Immunology in past years has been characterized by the introduction of hemoclassifying monoclonal antibodies and of new trials to deepen and to optimize the immunohematologic diagnosis, as well as to raise the scientific level of the professionals and technicians linked to specialty. The more relevant results were achieved in monoclonal antibodies generation and in the study of the erythrocyte and platetelet alloantibodies and autoantibodies. The work as Immunohematology Reference Laboratory has been emphasized as well as the contributions to transfusion medicine teaching. The future work projections must to be directed to introduction of molecular techniques in Immunology and to deepen in the study of antibodies to leukocytes and platelets.
