Why donate?

Did you know that most of the plasma components used in life saving therapies cannot be obtained in a lab? That’s why we need you.

What is plasma?

Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. It is composed of mostly water and a small portion of protein and antibodies. Your blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets which are suspended in plasma. Plasma contains some vital proteins such as albumin, gamma globulin and anti-hemophilic factor. All of these proteins can be used in life-saving therapies.

Is donating plasma the same as donating blood?

Plasma donation is a safe process that takes a little longer than a blood donation. During the donation process the liquid portion of your blood gets separated from its cells. Your blood passes through a special machine that collects and stores your plasma and returns your blood along with some saline.
Plasma replenishes in the body within 24 to 48 hours. Unlike a blood donation, giving plasma can be done safely twice in a 7 day period as long as there is a day between donations. Imagine how many people you can help with such frequent donations!

Who should donate plasma?

Are you wondering if you are eligible to donate plasma? Most healthy individuals can donate plasma if they are over 18 and weigh at least 110 pounds. On your first visit a medical examination will be performed to make sure that you are in good health and match our eligibility standards.
Because the plasma we collect from our donors is used in life-saving therapies and medication, we must maintain stringent quality control before, after, and during the donation process.
