Saving lives with quality blood services in partnership with the community.
In December 1950 the San Diego Blood Bank was established through the support of the San Diego County Medical Society. The foresight and dedication of founding fathers Dr. Thomas O'Connell and Dr. Frederick G. Hollander, led us to the San Diego Blood Bank of today, an organization known for excellence in its service to our community.
In the early years, the San Diego Blood Bank collected, stored and distributed blood products to hospitals in San Diego County just as it does today. Unlike those early years however, when the San Diego Blood Bank paid donors, the total amount of blood now brought into the San Diego Blood Bank is provided by a 100% volunteer donor effort. In 1968, 4,000 units of blood a month supplied the needs of our local hospitals. We now process approximately 10,000 units of blood per month and serve hospitals throughout Southern California.
The San Diego Blood Bank now also provides the Southern California region’s hospitals with a wide range of blood banking services. These include blood collection, component preparation, plateletpheresis, plasmapheresis, leukapheresis, washed blood, frozen blood, autologous storage, designated donation services and a reference laboratory. The Cell Therapy Program of the San Diego Blood Bank operates the Cord Blood Program providing lifesaving stem cell transplants to patients worldwide.
Today, the San Diego Blood Bank is growing to meet the changing needs of our health care community. We now supply hospitals in four Southern California counties. These counties include San Diego, Imperial, Orange, and Los Angeles. Frozen blood laboratories are now operated to accommodate storage of frequently used and rare blood types, and for patients who wish to donate blood for their own future use. We also offer continuing education for the blood bank community.
We can provide various blood products or components to support the needs of researchers, i.e. Human Platelet Lysate, Buffy Coats, other source Leukocyte products, Cord Blood Units, Whole Blood, Plasma, Platelets, and other products and services developed specifically for an individual research need. We also work with researchers in limited support of and collaboration on clinical trials and human subject research related needs.
These are units of human red blood cells, leukoreduced, manufactured for transfusion as a clinical product, fully tested, expired (beyond 42 day shelf life). Had long term agreement to sell expired units to another manufacturer. Need new buyer for research or for further manufacturing. May be purchased individually as-needed or weekly, by cartons of 20 units. Mix of ABO types.
