- Lab Services
Certified as Clinical Laboratory Improvement Act (CLIA) compliant, CBC laboratories provide 24 hour service and on-demand physician consultation.
The Immunohematology Reference Laboratory (IRL) performs testing for unexpected red cell antibodies, and if necessary, obtains blood for patients with extremely rare blood types. The IRL is a member of the American Rare Donor Association and is accredited by the AABB (American Association of Blood Banks).
The Platelet Antibody Laboratory provides testing and consultation that assists in the diagnosis of platelet transfusion and abnormal platelet destruction problems.
- Therapeutic Apheresis Program
Plasma exchange involves the separation and removal of plasma from the blood in order to remove harmful substances circulating in the plasma. The red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are returned to the patient, along with a prescribed replacement fluid. Simply stated, "old plasma" is removed and is replaced by "new plasma". Alternatively, abnormal red cells, platelets or white cells may be removed or exchanged.
A patient's physician prescribes therapeutic apheresis to control certain hematological, autoimmune and renal diseases including but not limited to the following:
Myasthenia Gravis, Guillain Barre Syndrome, Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura and Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy.
Red Cell Exchange
Malaria, Sickle cell crisis
White Blood Cell Depletion
Acute Leukemia "Blast Crisis"

- Autologous Donation Program
This program enables a patient to give his or her blood for their own use within 42 days for red blood cells, usually for elective surgery. You are a candidate for autologous donations if you: 1) have a hemoglobin of 11.0 g/dL or greater; 2) donate no more frequently than every seven days and 3) make last donation at least seven days before your scheduled surgical procedure.
To arrange for an autologous donation, your physician must contact Community Blood Center's Special Donations Office as early as possible to ensure there is enough time for you to donate. For more information, call (816) 968-4081.
- Directed Donation Program
When ordered by a physician, patients may specify their own donors for an expected transfusion. The donor must meet CBC, FDA and medical criteria to ensure safety of the blood supply and the donor. The requirements of directed donors are the same as volunteer donors which includes: 1) a minimum of 16 years of age, 2) a weight of at least 110 pounds, 3) hemoglobin of at least 12.5 (females) or 13.0 (males) and 4) no high risk behavior.
To arrange a directed donation, the patient's attending physician should contact Community Blood Center's Special Donations Office with orders. The patient is then contacted to provide a list of donors. Directed donations should be scheduled no later than seven working days prior to the patient's blood transfusion; these donations cannot be drawn on an emergency basis. For more information, contact the Special Donations Office at (816) 968-4081.
