TESTING EXPANDED TO INCLUDE SICKLE CELL TRAIT SCREENING
We are pleased to share that beginning with our April 19 blood drive, the Red Cross will expand its testing to include sickle cell trait screening on all donations from self-identified African American donors.
This additional screening will help the Red Cross identify compatible blood types more quickly to help sickle cell patients and provide African American donors an additional health insight during a time when health information has never been more important.
- In the U.S., it is estimated that over 100,000 people have sickle cell disease — most who are of African descent and will require regular blood transfusions to help manage their disease.
- Individuals who only carry the trait but do not have sickle cell disease are eligible to donate blood.
- The blood donation process will not change — donations will be screened using samples obtained at the time of donation.
- There will be no charge to donors.
- Due to the anticipated high demand, appointments are highly encouraged.
- Donors can expect to receive results to their screenings within one to two weeks through our Red Cross Blood Donor App and the online donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org.
- Donors need to have a successful donation to receive the screening results.
