Donating plasma or platelets by apheresis

Apheresis. It might sound complicated, but it’s just another word for how we collect your plasma.

How does it work?plasma_circle

While you’re resting in a comfortable chair, a special machine draws blood from your arm. The machine separates the blood out to collect the plasma. After that, we return the rest of your blood to you through the same needle.

This process is repeated until enough plasma has been collected, which usually takes between 45 minutes to an hour.

Donate more plasma more often

Another great benefit of this process is that you can donate more often if you’d like. The most you can donate is every two weeks, and you can go back to giving whole blood at any time (if you’re eligible).
