What kind of donation is right for me?
Please take time and study the literature provided in our "Become a donor" section above to figure out what kind of donation is the best fit for you.
You may donate plasma 2 times in a seven day period. You may donate Whole blood once every 56 days. Donating at one disqualifies you from donating at the other, so pick the one that works best for you!
What is plasma?
Plasma is the clear, straw-colored liquid portion of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It is the single largest component of human blood, comprising about 55 percent, and contains water, salts, enzymes, antibodies and other proteins.
What is Whole Blood?
Whole Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body’s cells, such as nutrients and oxygen, and transports waste products away from those same cells. Whole Blood includes red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma, and all other components present in human blood. Our Whole Blood is not used for transfusions.
