BloodSource helps fulfill military request for plasma

BloodSource helps fulfill military request for plasma

BloodSource has been asked to provide plasma to help support military blood needs.

Male donors who have Blood Type AB, the universal donor for plasma, are needed. 

Plasma is a blood component that is often critical for survival of injured soldiers on the front lines.  Only men are currently allowed to donate plasma at BloodSource. BloodSource, as part of  a national agreement between the Armed Services Blood Program Office and America's Blood Centers, a network of community blood centers that collects nearly half of the nation's blood supply, is a designated "hub center" for providing blood for military support when it is needed during wartime.

This process for blood shipment in support of military needs was pre-determined several years ago following Desert Storm in Iraq.  The agreement between America's Blood Centers and the U.S. Department of Defense is to assure all blood needs are met.
