UCLH offers Automated Red Cell Exchange (Auto-REX) as part of the emergency apheresis service in cases of emergency. Advantages over manual exchange are that the period between exchanges can be longer and there is no iron loading.

Referrals should be made from the referring consultant to a UCLH consultant. Additionally the apheresis referral form below referral form should be sent to ApheresisDistribution@uclh.nhs.uk

We have a full paediatric/adult service and will consider patients from anywhere in the UK
