SBC App

Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is excited to announce that we are in the process of launching a mobile app for iPhone and Android phones! We’re currently in the development and testing phase, and plan to launch the app to the public in fall of 2021.

In the meantime, you can download the beta version and try it out! While we will continue to develop and refine the app, we’d love your feedback! Get the app from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store anytime, and let us know what you think by filling out our brief survey.  If you need further support, you can also contact us at sbcsupport@stanford.edu.

Please note: The SBC app is available for download on Apple and Android-based mobile phones only — not for tablets, desktops or alternate phone operating systems (e.g., Windows, Blackberry, Symbian). It is also important to note that the app is in its BETA phase, meaning users can expect to find some “bugs” or irregularities.

What’s Inside?

The beta version of the app will allow you to tackle most of the tasks you usually do on the web portal, plus several fun and helpful extras!

Easy login

Need to reset your password? Forgot your username? First time setting up your account? No problem… it’s all there for you on the login screen. And once you’ve logged in, your device will remember you; so more more fishing around looking for that password!

If you want to log out, you can! Just click the menu at the top of the “me” tab once you are in the app.

The personalized “Me” tab is unique to each donor

App-only feature! You can see your digital donor ID card with blood type, name and ID number (if you have donated with us and have logged into your existing account). This digital donor ID card can be scanned just like a standard ID card when you come in to give blood. Now you don’t need to remember to bring a separate card!

See upcoming donation appointments, or see your eligibility and a “book appointment” button if no appointment exists.

See past donations.

Fill out SBC preCheck™ beginning at 12:01 a.m. on the day of your donation appointment.
