Different ways to donate
There are four main types of blood donation:
- Allogeneic donation (whole blood donation)
- Apheresis (plasma or platelet donation)
- Autologous donations (self-directed blood donations)
- Directed donations (blood donated by friends and family)
To find out more about each type, view the pages above, or contact one of our donor centres and ask to speak to a NZBS nurse.
