Trima Mobile bus to visit Jacksonville

The Blood Alliance (TBA) welcomes the Trima Mobile bus on its nationwide tour, scheduled to be at The Blood Alliance (7595 Centurion Parkway, Jacksonville, Fla. 32256) Jan. 31 from 9 a.m. – noon. The Trima Accel Automated Blood Collection System offers blood donors the opportunity to donate specific components of blood rather than the traditional way of giving a unit of whole blood. The visiting Trima Mobile bus will provide a chance to:

o Create excitement and awareness in the value of automated blood donations

o Excite the public as to their interest in mobile automated blood collections

o Promote blood collection within the community as part of National Blood Donor Awareness Month (January).

Representatives from US Coach (the manufacturer of the bus), CaridianBCT and Terumo Transfusion (soon to be known as Terumo BCT) will be on hand to discuss any of the aforementioned points.

The event is free and open to the public.
