Donating plasma is similar to donating blood. A donor will be comfortably reclined in a chair during the actual donation. A needle is placed in one arm and the blood goes through specialized plasmapheresis equipment that separates your plasma from the rest of the blood components. A donor’s red blood cells are then returned to the body using the same needle. All materials that come into contact with a donor’s blood during the plasmapheresis process are sterile and single-use only. During your donation, you will have the use of one arm and may use a handheld device or just relax and watch TV. Learn more about the plasma donation process.
You can donate plasma up to 2 times in a 7 day period, with at least 1 day between donations. If you have questions about when you are eligible to donate again, we encourage you to contact us prior to coming into our center.
B Positive Plasma reserves the right to not allow someone to donate plasma at any time.
Thousands of people safely donate plasma every day. All of the materials that come in contact with each donor’s blood are sterile, opened in the donor’s presence, and used only once before being disposed. The equipment that is used to collect the donor’s plasma never comes into contact with the donor’s blood. Donor safety is our number one priority and we aim to meet or exceed all applicable regulatory requirements.
We accept all blood types! You do not need to know your blood type to participate. Please note that B Positive Plasma does not test for blood type.
