The American Plasma centers are a non profit organization dedicated to plasma donations for biomedical research and hospital usage.

The American Plasma centers operating as American Plasma Inc, were bought out in 1998 by Seracare, which in turn was bought out by Biomat in 2002.

Biomat is a part of Grifols a multinational blood bank conglomerate.

  1. I think this is one of the most important info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The website style is ideal, the articles is really great : D. Good job, cheers

  2. Do me a favor, do know I should have ask a while back.
    On Monday, October 30th, 2011 did go w/o a problem to 8550 W. Bellfort; Houston, TX 77071 and donated my plasma.
    On Thursday November 3, 2011 arrived to the same location around 15H00 and it closed and lock. Someone told me that apparently some body had gotten to the roof and stolen copper from the AC/Heating units.
    It was closed still the following Monday – Thursday, remained still locked and no one around the place, except a few people that where trying to do the same thing, donate plasma.
    The Following week, on Tuesday November 15, did go to another place in Houston, located at 403 North York Street, Houston, TX 77003-1752, the medical staff told me that I had to go back, to W. Bellfort, and I told him that for 2 weeks seem to have been closed and locked, therefore, what should I do?
