Cangene is dedicated to saving lives. To achieve this goal, the staff at the collection company create enjoyable experiences in donation and introduce new products and services.
The collected plasma is used to manufacture various medications, immune globulins and protein products. These plasma products cure life-threatening diseases such as chicken pox, Hepatitis B and hemophilia.
Who can sell plasma?
Collecting plasma is a safe procedure. The entire procedure usually lasts for more than an hour (registration and examinations are included). After the registration part, you are asked to answer questions using their electronic and touch-screen screening test. This machine will obtain accurate and faster results.
To avoid failure results in the exam, you need to belong in the following criteria as listed below:
1) Those who follow a recommended protein diet (50-80 grams)
2) Those who have not drunk caffeine, alcohol and fatty food.
3) Those who are eighteen years of age and older.
4) Those who weigh 110 pounds. Overweight and underweight are not allowed to sell plasma due to complications.
5) Those who pass the series of examinations during your visit.
How much does the center pay?
You are paid in different rates. You’ll receive higher rates once you’re a member of their plasma program. For example, a member of Hepatitis B program receives $25 per session and a permanent member receives $75.
