Donation Benefits

Your donation helps those in need to live healthier lives.

Your plasma donation can save and improve lives, plain and simple.

Our parent company CSL Behring uses human plasma to produce therapies that are used around the world to treat bleeding disorders including hemophilia and von Willebrand disease, primary immune deficiencies, hereditary angioedema, inherited respiratory disease, and neurological disorders in certain markets. CSL Behring's products are also used in cardiac surgery, organ transplantation, burn treatment and to prevent hemolytic diseases in the newborn, so many people will benefit from your donation.

And donating plasma is good for you, too, because you’ll be compensated for your time, and leave with the knowledge that you’re making a real difference in someone else’s life.

What is plasma?

Plasma is a straw-colored liquid that carries red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Plasma is made up of water (about 90%), proteins and clotting factors (8%), and small amounts of salts, glucose (blood sugar) and lipids (fats). It helps to maintain a satisfactory and steady level of blood pressure as well as deliver proteins for blood clotting purposes and fighting various diseases.

Who is it helping?

Patients who use our products need them to replace missing or deficient proteins that allow them to lead healthy and more productive lives. These patients generally require regular infusions or injections throughout their lives as their conditions are genetic and chronic.
