A blood bank is a centre where blood gathered as a result of blood donation, stored and preserved for later use in blood transfusion. The term "blood bank" typically refers to a division of a hospital where the storage of blood product occurs and where proper testing is performed (to reduce the risk of transfusion related adverse events).


Blood is collected in plastic bags which contain a fluid which prevents blood from getting coagulated. Blood banks usually draw 450ml of blood when the blood donation is in the blood bank and 350ml when the blood donation is in a blood donation camp (outside the hospital). This blood, along with the anti coagulant present in the bottle or bag, is known as one unit of blood.
