DONATION PROCESS

Your First Plasma Donation:

  • For your first appointment, plan on spending about 3 hours at the donor center.
  • While you wait to donate, you will have your blood pressure checked as well as your pulse, temperature, and weight.
  • You will meet with a health care provider who will explain how the plasmapheresis process works and ask you the required donor questions.
  • You will meet with a doctor and be given a physical examination.
  • You will also be asked about your medical history.
  • You may be given a urinalysis and other basic lab procedures.
  • When it is time for you to donate, a nurse or a phlebotomist will direct you to a donor station where an IV will be placed in your arm to collect the needed plasma.
  • You will be monitored throughout the whole donation process by a nurse who will ensure that all safety procedures are being met.
  • The amount of plasma you will donate dpends entirely upon your weight. A full plasma donation does not exceed 880 mL.
  • After you are done donating, your blood will be spun down in a centrifuge in order to separate the red blood cells from the plasma.
  • After your plasma is spun down, you will receive your red blood cells back along with some saline (salty water) so as to replace the volume of fluid lost.
  • Once you are done donating, you will be monetarily compensated (see below for compensation amount).
  • Further donations will then be scheduled.

Subsequent Visits:

  • On subsequent visits, plan on spending approximately 1 hour to 1 1/2 hours at the donor center.
  • You will have all your vital signs and weight taken.
  • You will be asked all of the required donor questions.
  • You will have a finger prick so that the donor center can test your protein and iron levels.
  • Once you are finished with the above procedures, you then donate you plasma (actual donation process is the same as above).
  • Once you are done donating, you will be monetarily compensated (see below for compensation amount).
  • Further donations will then be scheduled.
