What is donated:

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. 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?
The donation amount depends upon the weight of the plasma donation, for instance 690 ml you receive – $15 for the first visit, and $15 for the second; for 825 ml – $15 for the first, $25 for the second; for 880 ml – $15 for the first, $30 for the second. These are based on donations twice in a 7 day period.

How often can one donate at the center?
You can donate plasma up to two times in a seven day period, as long as you wait 48 hours in between.

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 levels and protein level with a finger prick stick.

How long does a donation take?
On the first visit, it takes about two hours, then after that only about 1 ½ hours.

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

  1. This isnt a comment what I would like to know is I had Breast Cancer and have gone through chemo and finished in March 2012, can I still give plasma?

  2. i currently donate platelets through the red cross. I have a high platelet count. I’m interested in donating for money and would like to know what your process is.

    • @marty,

      Hi there! First of all, let me thank you for donating platelets to Red Cross. Platelets help prevent bleeding and they are used in many life-saving medical treatments. If you want to monetize your donation, I suggest you donate plasma to centers that develop plasma-derived therapies providing life-saving treatments for rare and chronic diseases.

      Here in BloodBanker, we do not handle the donation process. We just provide a directory of blood and plasma banks across the US to help people search for the nearest blood bank in case they want to give blood. You can search for plasma banks in – http://bloodbanker.com/banks/.

      You can find plasma centers nearest your location and I hope you can set yourself an appointment to donate.

      Hope this helps!
