The donor’s part ends here. Lab The blood is sent to the lab where it is separated into components: platelets, plasma and red blood cells Testing Center Tubes of blood samples are sent to the testing lab where they undergo many different tests for infectious disease and blood type If the blood passes all tests, a first time donor will receive a donor card, with his/her blood type on it 6-8 weeks after donation Donation Rest on a cot or chair while a Red Cross representative draws one unit of blood. A new sterile needle is used to draw each unit and the needle destroyed after it has been used. This takes less than 15 min.
