J.B. Gaskins, FBS VP for marketing and donor systems, said to his knowledge, there's no blood bank that sells a unit of red blood cells for that price, although some blood products, such as platelets, or clotting agents that are collected through apharesis, are more expensive than red blood cells. Gaskins also said there's a high cost involved to ensure blood is safe and meets FDA standards.
New safety measures, including testing for HIV, Hepatitis C virus and West Nile virus, have driven up the service fees for blood, according to America's Blood Centers, a network of nonprofit community blood centers. Fees increased from $43 for a unit of red blood cells in 1985 to $180 for a similar unit in 2008.
"When they look into all the aspects of what it costs to do business, I think they'll find, especially in Florida, that we have some of the lowest prices in the country," Gaskins said.

"It's one other area of safeguard for the blood supply," said J.B. Gaskins, vice president of recruitment and donor services at Florida Blood Services."People are so concerned about the big H's - hepatitis and HIV - we've lost focus that more people are exposed to bacterial contamination than HIV or hepatitis through a blood transfusion."
In January, FBS was one of six U.S. blood centers to begin participating in clinical trials for an experimental blood-cleansing procedure that is believed to kill a wide range of organisms, including HIV, malaria and mad cow disease.
So far, four patients served by FBS have received the cleansed blood as part of the clinical trial.The tests to spot bacterial infections, approved last October by the Food and Drug Administration, are the newest measures to protect the nation's blood supply.
