Canadian researchers may request from Canadian Blood Services moderate amounts of plasma protein and related products for research purposes. If you would like to make a request, please fill out the PPRP for Research Request Form. In addition, please send a copy of your research protocol andproof of approval by a Research Ethics Board (if applicable). Canadian Blood Services will review your request once all three documents have been forwarded to PPRPFormularyProgram@blood.ca.
Together with the documents (outlined above), approval for research products is contingent on Canadian Blood Services’ current inventory for clinical care. Canadian Blood Services reserves the right to decline a research request for product if its security of supply changes (even if research requests were previously approved).
Please note that researchers are responsible for covering the cost of products.
