The Donor Room serves a vital purpose in the advancement of transfusion technologies. Unlike typical blood donations intended for patient use, the blood products collected through our Donor Room are used solely for research, making it possible for our research scientists and engineers to develop new innovations and next generation medical devices.

Donor participation is critical throughout each phase of our research beginning with development and proceeding through pre-clinical studies and clinical trials. Without donor participation, we would not be able to develop transfusion-related technologies to provide hospitals, laboratories, and blood donation facilities with the safe and efficient transfusion devices they need.

Donating for Research

The first step towards helping those in need begins with people just like you. If you are considering donating blood, consider donating for research. Your participation is an important means to aid in the development of blood technologies used for a variety of applications, including the treatment of individuals with chronic and acute illnesses.
