What should I expect for my first donation?

Plan to spend up to 2 hours at the donor center. You will be asked about your medical history and may be given a standard urinalysis or other lab tests as required by the FDA. When it is time to donate, a medical professional or phlebotomist will place a sterile needle in your arm and begin the donation process.

More Info: To ensure your safety and comfort, you will be monitored throughout the process by a trained professional.
