Blood After Donation
After your unit of blood is collected – along with several small vials used for testing – your blood donation is labeled and transported to our component laboratory.
Whole blood donations are separated into two essential components, red cells and plasma.
Your blood is typed, which includes identifying the ABO type and a positive or negative Rh factor.
A combination of pre-donation screening and rigorous testing ensures the safety of blood supplied by Solvita. Each unit of blood is tested to make sure blood is safe for transfusions.
After your blood has been tested and processed, it is now ready to be distributed to hospitals.
