Stanford Blood Center

Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is much more than just a blood bank. We are a blood collection and research facility dedicated to saving patients’ lives by providing an array of quality specialized blood products and services. We supply one of the largest transfusion facilities in the United States as well as many area hospitals, clinics and laboratories.

To respond to the constant increase in demand for quality blood products, we’ve developed, and continue to expand, new collection programs, such as Automated Blood Collection (ABC), and Double Red Blood Cell (DRBC) Collection that are designed to provide the right product for the right patient at the right time. In addition to our volunteer blood donor programs, SBC provides physician-directed Autologous (self-donation) and Designated Donation services.

SBC, as part of the Department of Pathology at Stanford’s School of Medicine, is also committed to funding and supporting research that helps people live longer and better lives. For example, our Histocompatibility Laboratory has long been on the cutting-edge of developing tests that help determine organ recipient and donor organ compatibility.

At Stanford Blood Center, we constantly strive to continue improving our quality and service through sound management and education practices. In addition, we honor our role in the community by seeking and forming mutually beneficial partnerships with area businesses and organizations.
