Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. Your red and white blood cells float in plasma, along with a variety of different nutrients and proteins that are required to live a healthy life.

Plasma is a vital ingredient for a number of medications that treat and prevent life-threatening diseases and illnesses. Plasma can't be created in a lab; it can only come from healthy donors.

When a potential donor visits a plasma collection center, they will talk with a specialist who will gather some basic background and health information. Then the potential donor, if eligible, will go through the donation process where the donor’s blood is drawn. The blood goes through a special process to separate the plasma from the remainder of the blood, and then the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are returned to the donor. In all, the entire process takes about 90 minutes from start to finish after the initial donation.

Be sure to bring the following items with you when you visit one of our plasma centers:

  • A valid Government issued identification (Example: Driver's license, Military ID, etc.)
  • Proof of social security number (Example: Social Security Card)
  • Proof of local residency (Example: Piece of mail postmarked in the past 30 days, current lease, utility bill, etc)
  • If you are a resident of Mexico, please also provide a valid Border Crossing Card (BCC) or US Visa and Government issued document/identification indicating the CURP (Clave Unica de Registro de Poblacion) number

We have about 260 locations throughout the US and around the world for you to choose from. Find a CSL Plasma donation center near you here.

*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.
