Blood Banks

Programs that acquire, process, type, transport and store whole blood and blood products including red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and plasma constituents for use by people who need transfusions; and which conduct pretransfusion compatibility tests to ensure that blood transfusions, when necessary, are as safe as possible.

Blood Donor Stations

Locations, often established by blood banks, where people can come to donate blood.

Blood Drives

Programs that conduct campaigns which encourage volunteers to donate blood to ensure that blood supplies remain at safe levels; provide information about dates, times and locations where donations can be made; and schedule appointments for people who agree to donate.

Rare Blood Donor Registries

Programs that maintain a computerized registry of individuals whose red blood cells lack common antigens or have uncommon antigens and are willing make regular donations of blood which may be used in the treatment of patients who require this blood type for a safe transfusion. In situations where none of the blood centers have the requisite rare blood, a donor may be contacted to help a particular patient. A person's blood type is considered rare if only one other person in 1,000 lacks the same antigens or shares the same uncommon antigens.
