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.

$20, $30 first week, and $15 and $30 the second and there after.

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.

  1. I dont have a social security card right now. I do have a number, just no the card. Is that a problem? do i have to have the card or can they just take my number, Identification, and so forth?

  2. also, how can I make an appointment, they say it’s better then just walking in. I have tried to call the one in New Bern Avenue, but no one ever answers. Does anyone know the number to the one on Maiden Ln.?

    • @Meredith I assume you’re looking for this number – Phone:001 (919) 828-1590 – if no one still answers, I suggest you to search for another plasma bank using this directory BloodBanker
