Plasma

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)?
NONE

Advantages:

  1. I would like to be able to donate plasma and make a few extra dollars at the same time but I’m not sure there are any Blood Banks in my area. I live in Oneida county in NY. Are there any blood banks in the immediate area?

  2. I live in Brooklyn, New York and I am willing to go to Manhattan, Queens and Long Island to make a few extra dollars for my blood donation. Do you know where I can go?

    • @Jd Unfortunately, there are no paying banks around Rochester or Fairport. All of them are only collection banks, not plasma banks which pays you after plasmapheresis. If you have time, try exploring the following pages below. These are the plasma banks that pay.
      BioLife
      CSL
      Talecris
