Research

The demand for blood in research is high. Progress is often delayed due to lack of matches to participate. That’s why Cascade Regional Blood Services has created bResearch, a division devoted solely to matching your blood donations to life science research needs worldwide. Through bResearch, we partner with medical science professionals to help advance the research and development to cure disease.

Automated Blood Donations

During automated donation, donors can give a specific component in greater quantities than can be collected in a whole blood donation. Blood is processed in a cell separator machine; the needed products are collected, and the remaining blood is returned to the donor. The automated collection system takes combinations of platelets, plasma, and red blood cells depending on your blood type. Automated donation allows CRBS to efficiently manage the blood supply by collecting the optimal products needed by our community hospitals – helping cancer, trauma, and transplant patients.


Host a Blood Drive

About 60 percent of the community’s blood supply is collected at community blood drives, hosted by community members like you.


Where Does My Blood Go?

After your unit of blood is collected – along with sample tubes for testing – your blood donation is transported to our component laboratory.
