Become a Michigan Blood Collection Donor!

The research community around the world is making amazing advancements in therapeutic approaches to treating, and even curing, a wide range of diseases and disorders. To make this happen, scientists need a reliable source of blood samples to help them in their work.

This is where our donors come in!

Normal and disease-state blood donations through Michigan Blood Collection help researchers in their efforts to find a cure for a wide range of diseases that are impacting people all around the world. Join our donor community by completing our appointment scheduling form and a Donor Coordinator will reach out.

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.
