Hits: 6555

As part of the Natal Blood Transfusion Service (NBTS), the Natal Institute of Immunology (NII) was founded to expand the science of immunology, with particular reference to its application in clinical and preventative medicine.  Originally located on the 3rd floor of 149 Prince Street in Durban, the NII used extensive NBTS experience to develop the expanding science of immunology for the benefit of humanity. In 2000 the NII combined the Immunochemistry and ELISA Production Units to became the newly defined Biotechnology Division which was incorporated into the NBI.
