Blood Products

Products for In-Vitro Use:

Stanford Blood Center provides blood products for in-vitro investigational use. Tubes or whole units of blood may be collected from individuals selected by the researcher or recruited by the Blood Center. Products collected for in-vitro investigational use are not routinely tested for infectious disease markers, although donor pre-screening can be arranged. Because products for in-vitro use do not meet the same safety criteria as blood products for transfusion, these components must not be used for infusion or for manufacturing into infusible products.

Products for In-Vivo Use (Clinical Trials):

Stanford Blood Center collects blood products for investigational in-vivo use. Products may be collected from patients for re-infusion into the same patient (autologous donors), from relatives of patients (directed donors) or from normal healthy donors (allogeneic donors). IRB approval is required for all trials involving investigational in-vivo use of blood products.
