What do they do with the plasma?

Plasma is used in the treatment of disorders like hemophilia and other immune system deficiencies, and to make products used to aid with tetanus, rabies, measles, rubella and hepatitis B. If someone suffers from hemophilia, they lack the natural clotting factors that help stop bleeding, so plasma-based products can be used to treat people with this disorder. Plasma derived albumin, used in the treatment of trauma injuries like shock and severe burns, is sold to hospitals and emergency rooms all over the world.

How much does the center pay per donation?
$20 , $50, $20, $50 after that goes to $15 and $30

How often can one donate at the center?
You can donate plasma up to two times in a seven day period.

What tests are performed prior to signing up?
New donors must have a driver’s license social security card or proof of residency. They conduct a brief medical history, and determine if you are in good health. Then they check vitals- temperature, blood pressure, and pulse, and check for iron level and protein level with a finger stick.

How long does a donation take?
On the first visit, the whole process which includes the physical exam and the plasma donation it usually takes about two hours. After that it only takes about an hour and a half per donation.

Are there any upfront costs for the potential donor to enroll in the program (startup costs)?

    • @Mercedes To be a qualified plasma donor or to sell plasma, you need to be eighteen years of age, weighs at least 50 kg., be in a perfect health condition during the donation day and must pass the series of physical examinations.

  1. I have donated plasma in another state (not for money). What if any paper work do I need to bring in order to do this; related or unrelated to previous donations.

  2. Hello, I have recently given twice at a plasma center in Charlotte, Nc. The clients were intimidating and loud and the staff did not seem able to keep them under control which made me very uncomfortable. I would like to go to this one because it was recommended. Is there a certain timeframe you have to wait to go to a different company? Thanks for your help!
