URGENT NEED: We have an urgent need to replenish our supply of Type O-negative red blood cells. Multiple victims of a trauma are being treated at a hospital that receives blood components from our Blood Center. Blood is available for patient care but we must now replace a high volume of units used in the trauma. O-negative donors, please schedule an appointment for donation as soon as possible by calling (800) 747-5401 or via our online scheduling system

The Universal Donor

Type O-Negative donors are universal donors. This means that their red blood cells can be transfused to any patient, regardless of the recipient’s blood type. In the case of an emergency, doctors often do not have time to determine the blood type of the patient and depend on Type O blood for trauma patients and accident victims.

Quick Facts

  • 9% of the population is type O-.
  • O- is the highest in-demand blood type because anyone can receive O- red blood cells, although O- plasma can only be transfused to another type O.
  • Type O- red cells can be used for any patient but are especially needed for emergencies, for babies, and for those with weakened immune systems.
  • Preferred donation methods: double red blood cell and whole blood.
  • Doctors depend on type O blood for trauma patients and accident victims.
  • Although anyone can receive O- blood cells, type O- can only receive type O- blood.
