saves lives


Your blood saves lives A pint of blood is drawn from a volunteer donor.


Blood Donor

Blood is transfused to patients in need. Just one blood donation has the potential to save three lives!

Blood is collected into a sterile bag and labelled.

South African National Blood Service

CK 06

Units are transported to the nearest SANBS testing and processing lab.

In the processing laboratory, blood is spun down in a centrifuge and then separated in to its dierent components.

What happens to your blood


BLOOD DRIVES 9 December: 11am - 5pm Vincent Park Centre (opposite Ocean Basket) Round Table Big Bleed Week 19-23 December. Office hours. Berea and Beacon Bay Donor Centres

Platelets expire in 5 days. Red blood cells expire in 42 days. Plasma has a 2 year shelf life from the day of collection.

Local hospitals place orders with SANBS for blood products based on their needs.

Blood is tested to ensure that it is safe for transfusion.

Red Blood Cells Contain haemoglobin, a protein that carries oxygen throughout the body. Used to treat patients with anaemia or blood loss due to trauma or surgery.

Plasma Contains special proteins and clotting factors required to assist platelets to form blood clots and to treat patients with serious blood disorders.

Blood products are stored prior to transfusion. The shelf life of blood is limited.

Platelets Crucial in helping blood clot. Patients with low platelet levels often suer from bruising and bleeding.
