Frequently Asked Questions

What is mobile blood donation?

Mobile blood donation takes place inside a bloodmobile. These vehicles are owned and operated by blood donation centers such as the American Red Cross, and they are driven to public areas to increase the frequency of blood donation. The concept of a mobile blood donation center has been around for over 50 years. 

Bloodmobiles are a valuable tool in modern society, where convenience is everything. The vehicle gives brick-and-mortar healthcare facilities the ability to take their blood donation equipment straight to the public. These vehicles are often set up outside workplaces, at colleges or public universities, churches, high schools, and more. They may offer extra incentives such as class credit, time off work, and free food to motivate donors to show up.

What layout is best for a bloodmobile?

Each client should work with a company that allows them to have a hand in designing the optimal layout for their staff and clients. Bloodmobiles are often created with optional add-ons, such as private screening areas and custom floor plans that maximize floor space. . They may also include microwaves, refrigerators, and other staff amenities. It’s important that the vehicle has enough space for all the equipment that will be required for this specific blood drive. 

Many bloodmobiles also have Donor Health history rooms, comfortable donor beds or chairs, and storage space. When designing a customized floor plan, it’s important to consider the needs of your staff and the comfort of your donors. Will you only have a few people in the vehicle at a time, or do you need to cater to a large audience? What type of blood are you collecting? All these factors will influence the floor plan you choose.

What type of vehicle is used for a bloodmobile?

Bloodmobiles can be built on a variety of specialty vehicles, including trucks, trailers, buses, and coach-style vehicles. The type of platform that the vehicle is built on is also an important factor in the final construction. Bloodmobiles can be built on a cab-chassis, step-van, or coach. Each type of vehicle has unique advantages. When choosing the type of vehicle for your bloodmobile, make sure to consider the space you will need for patron flow, equipment, storage, private rooms, and amenities such as microwaves and refrigerators. Many bloodmobiles can be customized with slide-out sections to allow for extra space.

What amenities can be added to a bloodmobile?

Amenities such as microwaves and refrigerators can be added to a bloodmobile. Though not necessary for the everyday work of blood collection and donor processing, these amenities can certainly contribute a great deal to the comfort of the donors, staff and team members who are working on the vehicle. If your staff is required to work long hours or travel long distances, including these options can really help support your staff. 

Bloodmobiles can also come equipped with Donor Health history rooms. These rooms ensure the confidentiality of every donor who walks through your doors. Slide-out rooms are another option that can be added onto a bloodmobile. They bump up the square footage of the vehicle, allowing more room for blood donor beds, patron flow, and storage space.

How long is a bloodmobile?

A bloodmobile may be anywhere from 14-feet to 53-feet long, depending on the platform that it is built on and the type of vehicle that is used to construct the bloodmobile. Mobile blood donation centers are often available in custom sizes and lengths, allowing clients even more flexibility when ordering these vehicles. To figure out what size of bloodmobile you need, consult with a design expert to come up with the optimal floor plan for your needs. You may also work with a project manager to oversee your project and with an installation team to discuss the options and amenities that you need in the vehicle. All of these factors will help you decide what length of vehicle to choose.
