The Stanford Blood Center provides a broad range of blood products and testing services. The staff works closely with physicians when patients require autologous and designated blood donations and clinical therapeutic phlebotomy.

Our Automated Blood Collection (ABC) Department, also known as apheresis, collects specific blood components, including

  • platelets
  • red blood cells
  • plasma
  • leukocytes

We also participate in the National Marrow Donor Program. The laboratories within the Blood Center provide specialized clinical testing, including flow cytometry and tissue typing services.


Donate Blood

Every day, patients depend on donations from healthy individuals in our community to provide life-sustaining blood components. Make an appointment to donate blood.
