AABB and Fenwal Sponsor Third Annual Blood Collectors Week
Date:9/14/2007

ction professionals are responsible for educating people on their blood donation options, and facilitating a safe, comfortable donation experience. People may choose to give blood via a manual or automated method. During a manual donation, a pint of blood is collected and then separated into its therapeutic transfusion components, typically red cells, platelets and/or plasma. When donating via an automated system, donors give the therapeutic blood components most needed based on their blood type and donor qualifications, allowing them to give more of that component(s).

Blood collectors serve an important role in helping individuals identify the best donation method and ensuring the right components of the right blood type are on hospital shelves when needed. Type O negative is the universal blood type for red cells, and type AB is the universal blood type for platelet and plasma donors.

To schedule a blood donation, or to learn more about Blood Collectors Week, individuals are encouraged to contact their local blood center by visiting http://www.aabb.org. To donate blood, one must be healthy, and meet age, weight and other donor requirements.
