STANFORD, Calif. — In order to save time during the registration process, Stanford Blood Center (SBC) has launched SBC preCheck™, a new tool that gives donors the option to pre-register for their next appointment or walk-in donation. By visiting, donors have the ability to fill out the medical history questionnaire on their own phone or computer ahead of their donation, so long as it is completed the same day.

“We’re always looking for ways to improve the donor experience and the new process provides a great option for those who want to speed through the check-in line,” said SBC Spokesperson Ross Coyle. “Donors can now save time during check-in, since they’ll be able to go straight from registration to the donor history booth once a room is available.”

The easy step-by-step website guides donors through the registration process and, once they are done with the medical history questionnaire, gives them a unique QR code, which they can print out or show on their mobile devices to our team. Just like filling out a medical history questionnaire in person, donors will always have the opportunity to review their answer with one of our team members and change any answers verbally in the medical history booth before they give blood.

Coyle added, “SBC preCheck™ is entirely optional, designed for donor convenience, and will not change the donation process should a donor choose not to use it. Additionally, using SBC preCheck™ once does not mean a donor has to use it every time.”

Individuals needing help logging in to SBC preCheck™ or who have additional questions can reach out to SBC Donor Relations at or call 650-736-7786.
