Trima Mobile Bus To Visit Jacksonville!


The Blood Alliance (TBA), enriching lives since 1942, welcomes the Trima Mobile bus on its nationwide tour, scheduled to be at The Blood Alliance (7595 Centurion Parkway, Jacksonville, Fla. 32256) on January 31st from 9:00 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:

  • Create excitement and awareness in the value of automated blood donations
  • Excite the public as to their interest in mobile automated blood collections
  • 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 Blood Alliance hopes that the opportunity to share the Trima Mobile bus with the Jacksonville public will prove to be a worthwhile effort at multiplying the efforts of our blood donors and their donations,” said Tom Reynolds, Director of Donor Services at The Blood Alliance. “We hope people who have been regular whole blood donors or those who are considering automated donations, take advantage of this opportunity to come out and learn about the different ways to give the gift of life!” 
 The event is free and open to the public.
