Today's Donation May Lead to Tomorrow's Cure.
With Michigan Blood Collection, your living gift of a blood donation helps researchers around the world in their efforts to find a cure. We collect both normal blood samples as well as disease-state blood samples with a focus on cancer, degenerative disorders, and genetic conditions. Learn more about how your donation helps to accelerate research like this!

Used by Researchers for a Wide Range of Scientific Projects

Donors offering normal samples will register for a collection event that works best with their schedule, minimizing disruption to the day.

Donors providing disease-state samples may be dealing with medical conditions such as Cancer, Alzheimer’s or Lupus that have their own set of discomforts and limitations. Michigan Blood Collection is set up to come to you! When you schedule an appointment, our Donor Coordinator will help you set up your donation for a date, time, and location that is easy and convenient for you. Our disease-state donors frequently choose to donate from the comfort of their own homes!

Donating disease-state blood with Michigan Blood Collection is like a blood draw you may have experienced at your doctor’s office. We will collect four small tubes (around 40mL) in a process that takes about five minutes. We want to make this as easy as possible and will come to you, your donation happens from the comfort of your home!

For normal blood donations, a full unit of blood, typically 300-400mL, will be collected over a 10 to 15-minute period. You will have a short observation period following your donation where you will be provided a light snack. Normal samples are collected during collection events and may be selected once registration is complete.
