How To Target Type® O+

O+ Target Your Type March 30, 2022

O Positive

O+ is the most common blood type and that is what makes it so powerful.

37% of the population has O+ blood. Since more people have O+ blood than any other blood type, it is transfused more often.

Having the most popular blood puts O+ donors in a unique situation. Their red blood cells are needed and so too are their platelets. This reality means O+ donors have three different donation options.

Preferred Donation Method(s):

Double Red Blood Cell Donation Whole Blood Donation Platelet Donation
