YOUR PLASMA DONATION
GIVING IS SAFE
On your initial visit, you’ll be given a physical exam to
assure you’re healthy and fit to donate. And at each
visit, we’ll check your vital signs and review your
medical history to verify there are no changes. Along
with this, we’ll check your red blood cell and plasma
protein levels to make sure they are within our
acceptance limits. After donating, your plasma will be
thoroughly tested for various infections including
hepatitis B, hepatitis C and HIV. This assures your
safety as well as the safety of the medicines derived
from your plasma.

just plasma — You’re giving
hugs to teddy bears, first days of

of donating plasma at BioLife
Plasma Services can save a life.
THE INS & OUTS
Plasma is essential to life. It is the pale yellow portion
of blood that consists of mostly water and proteins,
which help fight infection and control bleeding. It also
helps in the circulation of red and white blood cells
Because of its blood-clotting and infection-fighting
properties, plasma is used as a base for many lifesaving therapies and medicines. It’s used
in the treatment of life-threatening disorders such
as hemophilia and immune system deficiencies, and
in surgical sealants that benefit thousands of people
every day. Hospitals and emergency rooms also use
plasma-derived albumin to treat traumatic injuries
such as shock and severe burns.
Giving is Simple.
The body replaces plasma quickly. That’s why you
can donate up to two times within seven days, with
at least one day between visits. Donating plasma is
safe and easy. You can listen to music, read or simply
relax while you give. You must be between the ages
of 18 and 98, weigh at least 110 pounds and be in
general good health. After passing a physical exam
and medical health history, you can give, and receive,
