FAQS


What does AllCells - LeukoLab do?

At AllCells – Leukolab we collect blood and cell donations from healthy donors. Those collections then go to medical and scientific researchers. We are different from a regular collection facility, like a blood bank that collects blood for patients. Our donors are compensated for their participation in a research study. DONATION OPTIONS

I cannot donate with other blood banks. Can I donate at AllCells - LeukoLab?

You might be able to donate with AllCells – LeukoLab even if you cannot donate with a regular blood bank. Because our research grade donations do not go to patients, we do not have the same requirements as blood banks. We encourage all prospective donors to fill out our online questionnaire to find out. Questions on tattoos, piercings and travel will not disqualify a donor from our research grade collections.

I filled out the online questionnaire, why was I not accepted?

Our screening questionnaire is intended to ensure the safety of our prospective donors and a high quality product of cells for our researchers. There are a variety of reasons a prospective donor could be disqualified, including medical history, current medications, or other suitability considerations. Please understand that our requirements are very specific and often a disqualification could be a combination of many factors and not any one specific reason.

How will I be compensated?

All compensation is made in the form of Visa debit cards. Your first compensation is sent in the mail. All following compensations are received at our front desk immediately after your collection. Please see the Donation Options for the compensation amounts. Your first screening appointment and other rescreenings (required every three months) are not compensated.

I did not meet the requirements of the online questionnaire. Can I take it again?

No, please do not repeat the questionnaire. Once completed your submission cannot be retaken. If you feel you made an error or need to reach out to us, fill out this form for us to follow up with you.

Will I be disqualified for smoking, tattoos, piercings, travel, etc?

No, you will not be disqualified. These are all acceptable for our research grade collections.

Can I bring my child to my appointment?

No, we ask that you do not bring children to any of your appointments. For their safety, children are not allowed in our collection area and cannot be in the waiting area without adult supervision.

What can I expect for my on-site screening?

Your first screening will take about an hour. First, you will be asked to fill out paperwork at the front desk. Then our medical staff will bring you into our collection area to assess weight, height, and vital signs and take a small sample of blood for testing. They will review the different donation options and discuss the donations for which you qualify. At this time, they may inform you that you do not qualify for any collections. While this does not happen often, it can occur based on these assessments.

Will I be notified if I have a positive blood test?

You will receive a call from our medical staff if there is a test result that requires further medical attention.

How do I make an appointment for a donation?

At the end of your on-site screening, our donor management staff will review your qualifications and see if you match up with any upcoming donation requests. We will continue to reach out to you by phone as more requests come in daily. If you are looking to donate again or have not heard from us in awhile, please use our I want to donate again form.

Can I drive myself home after a donation?

Yes, you will be able to drive yourself home after all of our collection types, including whole blood, bone marrow and white cell donations.

Does donating bone marrow hurt?

Please see the donation options section to read more about donating bone marrow. This minimally invasive procedure will have some discomfort; however, donors are able to drive themselves home after their donation. The procedure for donating bone marrow has developed a great deal in the past few years and many of our donors return to donate bone marrow again.

How many donations can I provide in one visit?

Most of our appointments will only entail one collection. There may be instances where we may request a whole blood donation in addition to other scheduled donations on the same day.

Are you open on weekends?

No. Our business hours are Monday – Friday 7:15 am – 4:00 pm. However, most of our donations are normally Monday – Thursday in the mornings from 7:15 am – 12 pm. If you are interested in participating, it will be important to have some availability for morning appointments.

Do you take walk- in appointments?

No, we take donors by appointments only.
