AB Positive

AB+ is one of the rarest of all the blood types with only 3% of the population sharing this power. Donors who are AB+ are called the universal plasma donor because this component can be transfused into any patient, regardless of the recipient’s blood type.

In addition to your plasma, platelets from AB+ donors are also compatible with several other blood types, making them in high demand by local hospitals.

To maximize your true lifesaving power, AB+ donors are strongly encouraged to donate plasma as well as platelets through an automated procedure known as apheresis.
