Post-Donation Tips: What you can do after donating
We are one of the world's largest collectors of human plasma
Plasma is the key ingredient for products crucial to treating patients suffering from a host of life-threatening conditions around the world.
Patients rely on plasma-based therapies
You can become an essential part of savings someone’s life by donating plasma.
What plasma donors can expect as they enter a CSL Plasma center
You’ll be greeted by one of our friendly staff. You’ll be asked to provide a valid form of identification, proof of residency and proof of your social security number. Next, you will answer a few questions using our donor kiosk.
Our qualified medical staff will perform your medical history and perform a brief physical examination to verify your eligibility as a donor.
The donation process
The donation process is called plasmapheresis and involves an automated machine that removes whole blood and separates plasma into a container. The red blood cells are then re-infused into the body. This process usually takes about 90 minutes. Sit back and read, relax or enjoy our wi-fi.
Plasma donors are compensated for their time
Once the plasma donation process has been completed, you will receive compensation for your time. Before leaving, please schedule your second donation. U.S. Plasma donors may donate twice in a seven-day period with at least two days in between donations.
First time donors, please contact the center to confirm that your home address is within our recruitment area prior to visiting since it varies per location.
*New donors can earn up to $400. Compensation and promotions for eligible, qualified donors vary by location and weight. Ask the center manager at your preferred donation location for details about your compensation.
