Mobile blood collection unit: GLOBULE

Thanks to RBC Royal Bank and Couche-Tard, we present to you GLOBULE, our new mobile blood collection unit

Héma-Québec has a duty to efficiently provide adequate quantities of safe, optimal blood components and substitutes to hospitals to meet the growing needs of Québec’s population. As a result, recruiting and retaining loyal blood donors are daily challenges requiring multiple approaches. In addition to growing its existing donor networks, Héma-Québec must use innovative methods to reach new communities of potential donors. The mobile blood collection unit allows Héma-Québec’s teams and volunteers from the Association of Blood Donation Volunteers to reach communities where there is significant potential for blood donations, but that would otherwise be hard to access or that do not have appropriate locations for holding blood drives.

GLOBULE, the mobile blood collection unit, is a completely autonomous blood collection site in and of itself. It is a vehicle fully equipped with all that is necessary for properly running a blood drive. Our donors have a one-of-a-kind experience in GLOBULE!

Thank you to RBC Royal Bank and Couche-Tard for making this project possible and for having a positive impact on blood donors’ lives and blood collection throughout Québec
