Participant Satisfaction



How the Donation Process Works


Once you have signed up to participate in the AbbVie Onsite Healthy Donor Program, one of our research coordinators will reach out to conduct an over-the-phone screening that takes about 10-15 minutes.

During the screen, you will be asked questions about your health and demographic information.


Informed Consent and Documentation

Once you are deemed eligible to participate in a study, you will be emailed an Informed Consent Form (ICF).

Informed Consent is the most important aspect of any research study as it outlines and confirms research participants' rights. The ICF may be signed electronically.


After all proper documentation is on file, we will schedule your blood collection appointment with one of our trained, licensed phlebotomists.

One the day of your appointment, please make sure to be hydrated and follow all instructions provided by your research coordinator.



At the end of your appointment, $70 will be loaded onto a reloadable VISA gift card for your contribution.

Got a question?

As a thank you for your time, we will provide you with a $100 Visa gift card for each blood collection appointment you participate in. You will receive the gift card immediately after the appointment is completed. 

You can withdraw from the study or decline participation at any time without providing a reason.

Your safety and privacy are our primary concerns. All private health information (PHI) provided to Sanguine is kept confidential and coded, so no one can identify you or connect you with your medical information. No samples we share with researchers contain any information that can directly identify you. We implement policies and procedures to protect your PHI in compliance with the law. If you want to learn more about your privacy rights, please see our privacy policy.

Preparation varies depending on the type of appointment. Your clinical research coordinator will review preparation needed before your appointment. For appointments that require blood draws, hydration is very important. Not being sufficiently hydrated can make it difficult to find a vein. Drink at least 2 glasses of water before your appointment. In addition, please refrain from drinking alcohol 24 hours prior to your blood draw.

After you provide your basic health information, we will review your health profile within 48 hours to see if you might qualify for a research study. If you do not qualify for any of our current studies when you sign up, we will keep your contact information on file and reach out when we have a study that matches your health profile. 

When a research coordinator calls you, he/she will ask you questions regarding your medical history to determine if you qualify for any of our current studies. He/she will also walk you through the Informed Consent process and what you should expect going forward. Depending on the study, we may ask you to sign a Release of Medical Records so that we can provide the researchers with additional information they need to conduct their study. Please have your physician's contact information available.

All of our mobile health staff undergo an extensive background check and screening process, ensuring that only the most experienced and trusted mobile health staff are a part of the Sanguine team.
