Blood donations made to the American Red Cross are used nationwide and in other countries. The American Red Cross collects one-half the total amount of blood donated in the United States.


The Blood Source falls under the jurisdiction of the Food and Drug Administration and California Department of Public Health, Office of the State Public Health Laboratory Director (OSPHLD).
