Placenta and blood donation

After Natasha gave birth to our baby, hospital nurse asked if we would like to donate placenta for some research.
We do not mind, because the alternative is to just throw placenta to trash.

But now they also ask for additional blood sample as a part of that placenta donation. Even more, they do not even want to use hospital IV that is already inserted to take that blood sample.

That extra blood requirement seems weird to me. If they really need placenta - they should take it without blood I think.

Do you know why they may need that extra blood?
