URGENT NEED for ALL DONATIONS & BLOOD TYPES especially Type O, AB and all types for Platelets. Click here to schedule your donation and help spread the wordThere is no deferral for COVID-19 vaccinations currently being administered in the U.S. and donors are not required to show status. Learn more about our donor eligibility and Coronavirus Pandemic Response. Face masks and appointments are required. Same-day appointments can be made, call 800-747-5401.  

We have a new name, ImpactLife, that better reflects our mission. Read more about our evolution here: www.bloodcenter.org/impactlife 

If a hospital requires confirmation or assistance in identification of antibodies, an Immunohematology Consultation Request form (link below and in BloodHub) must be completed and accompany the samples. ImpactLife will provide transportation of the sample.

It is important to include as much information as possible to assist ImpactLife in antibody resolution.

After identification, an initial report is provided to your hospital laboratory by phone, then the report is placed in BloodHub. ImpactLife will place a final report in BloodHub reviewed by the Medical Director. If units are required, ImpactLife will screen the large known antigen database and inventory for our donors to assist with providing antigen negative units. ImpactLife participates in the American Rare Donor Program which can be used to locate extremely rare donor units.
