So just word of advice. I have never, ever, done anything stronger then alcohol or weed, but during grad school I developed severe anxiety and started to abuse alcohol. I sought help through OSU and the psychiatrist put me on naltrexone to help fight cravings. Naltrexone is also an opioid inhibitor used to treat people with with those types of addictions but is occasionally used for alcohol as well. The first time I tried to donate at Bio Blood Components I was still on naltrexone even though I had stopped using alcohol, and I was upfront about the medications I was on. BBC, informed me that I couldn_t donate because of the naltrexone and I would need to prove I wasn_t drinking (exactly how I would do that I_m not sure...) Fast forward and I_m strapped for cash as grad students are, and haven_t been on naltrexone for at least two months. I try to go back to BBC and I_ve been flagged for life and can_t donate there at all. They didn_t care that it had never been for opiates....

This place has moved to 1393 North High Street, Columbus Ohio 43201. They pay $50 your first 5 donations, then based on your weight. Its really nice, clean and the staff appears to know what they are doing. I will continue to donate here. Excellent place to get some extra income. (Paid Plasma Donation Center)

I proudly donate blood on a regular basis because it gives others something they desperately need to survive.

I_ve been donating here for a while....up front Belinda does her job very we_ll and she is funny. On the floor Karen is amazing and very professional and knows her job very well. Kara does her job very well also. On the otherhand there_s 2 girls I guess her name is key and the other us Stephanie.key has a very bad attitude and I_ve heard her talk down to her coworkers.whatever she is unhappy about she doesn_t need to bring it to work.Stephanie is extremely unprofessional she doesn_t look clean and her conversations are very inappropriate for any job. So if u can avoid these 2 girls u will have a pleasant experience.

My experience there was pretty good I_ve been donating off and on for a couple years at this center. The front area they are really nice Belinda does her job very we_ll....on the actual floor Karen does a great job and is very professional and glad she is still there .. Kara is also good and knows her job also....they hired a few new phlebotomist and they seen really nice...the only downside is the the girl t.c she has a very bad attitude ...also a girl name Stephanie she is extremely unprofessional and talks about personal...tooo personal about her life which is very unapprioate....if they get rid if those two things would be so much better...they r why I donate in the morning so I can deal with Karen and Kara and avoid the attitude from the other 2...it easier to come early because u can pretty much get in and out

I find it funny that a former employee says this place is unsanitary but continues to donate. Anyway, I like this place. It_s quick, convenient and the people are good. The only thing I don_t like is that thy don_t use computers. But other than that this place is pretty cool.

Sam, for being a donor-how come you think it_s so unsanitary? I have been donating here for well over a year and believe it_s the cleanest plasma center on Ohio. Great people and easy money. You have to judge for yourself, not some disgruntled fired employee (probably for poor spelling).

I_ve been there twice and this is the first place I_ve been to to donate plasma. The 2nd time I went, couldn_t donate because the nurse said I was healthy but I had a certain TY antibody that prohibited me from donating plasma from this center. Is there another place I can donate without the same problem? The staff was nice and didn_t have to wait long. Any input on info., I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

love this place pure entertainment every time I go. The conversations you overhear are hysterical. I donate twice a week and will continue. The only down side is for first time donors it takes between 3-6 hours. Make sure u have your ID, SS card or prof of it, and a piece of mail postmarked within 30 days of the date in which you go your first time. Make sure your mail matches your ID and is a valid ID. Also avoid eating fatty food before hand and drink Tons of water it makes the process way faster. Clean place with great people. You get 40$ your first 2 Times and thirty after that. You can donate twice a week on non consecutive days. Every sixth donation of the month you get a five dollar bonus.

I entered the center at 7:05am, 5 minutes after they had opened, and bye 8:30 my name hadn_t been called. I truly believe at times that the employees has no respect for donors, nor their life style outside psma center and corporate does little to change things. And that_s why I will be searching alternative methods to earn extra cash.

The only issue I had was with the amount of time it took getting to the actual donation. But, there was a lot of people ahead of me. The staff was great. Very friendly. Just need to find a way to speed up the process. 6 hours is kind of crazy.

friendly and professional staff..I don_t know much about medical procedures but I was impressed with the level of organization and coordinated efforts to process donors. I have been able to save a considerable amount of money from going there over the period of several months and I was actually surprised that donating could be so rewarding. great way to spend a bit of extra time for a good cause.

I like this place. They are polite and the people there care about you during the process. It does take time, but soon they will be automated which will make it super fast!!! I get $60 a week to watch TV. I love this place- you also get an extra $5 for each person you bring and donates.

I like the place because it is not as big as and hectic as CSL. Service is crap though. Nice people but, dont seem to interested in serving the donors. Plenty of open beds with a packed waiting room. Only After they lock the door at closing do they show a sense of urgency. Minimal wait 2-3 hours but Ive been there for 4-5 from time to time. Could be much better.

It was the worst experience. It was my first time ever donating but, i don_t think that I would ever go there again. When i did call they were polite and when i first got there they were nice. But the wait was too too long and some of the people were very rude and it wasn_t a good experience for me.

I have been going to this center for almost a year now. I am always pleased. The center is very clean and the staff is always friendly. The process is not so bad either (and I_m not a big fan of needles). Easy way to make some extra $$$.

The should really inform people of the disqualifying factors before you waste 2 hours going through their bureaucratic bulls*** and pricking your finger. The staff seems nice, but they_re all fairly arrogant and stuck up when dealing with clients. I witnessed them deny a man to use the bathroom because he wasn_t a donor, but was waiting for his friend.

good, easy way to make extra $, 35 first 2 donations. then its 30 for the first four, 35 for second four. so you can go 8 times a month and make $260! some of the other donors are a bit ignorant, but then again look where its located.

I have not been there, but called and got the following details for plasma donations. They pay $35 for each of your first two donations, then pay varies by weight: $30 if you are 150lbs or over, $25 if you are 150lbs or under. walk-in only, no appointments :-(

Its a good place. I went a second time and there weren't hobos or anything like that. I found a parking space on the street so I wouldn't get towed in the family dollar parking lot and they paid me 35 dollars. I tried the place up the street but it took 4 hours, this place takes less than an hour and a half. I told my friend about it and this place paid me for her donation too. Not too bad for a second time.

In a bad part of town. On the way to my car two hobos asked me for money. Minimal parking: no parking in the family dollar across the street (towing inforced). The place looked kind of run down and a bunch of dirty men who looked homeless were in the waiting room. $40 bucks though for your time

You can get paid for plasma donations! I got paid 35 dollars for my first and second time, then the third I got 30 dollars! It fast and easy. All I needed was an unexpired photo ID, social security card and two pieces of mail post dated in the last thirty days and I was in.
I was done in under two hours the first time and every other time its been 45 minutes or so. I would tell everyone to do it, its quick easy tax free cash!
