New Jersey Plasma Donations
Donate Plasma in NJ
Patients all over the world rely on plasma protein therapies to treat rare, chronic diseases. These individuals rely on the generosity and commitment of plasma donors. You may donate plasma in one of more than 450 licensed and certified plasma collection centers located in the U.S. and Europe.
Plasma is one of the key blood components needed for modern medicine. During a plasma donation, blood is drawn from one arm and channeled through a sterile, single-use collection set to an automated machine. The machine collects select components – plasma only, or a combination of plasma and platelets units – and then safely returns the remaining blood components, along with some saline to you.
AB Blood Type is the Universal Plasma Donor
People with AB blood type are the universal plasma donor. This means your plasma can be received by anyone, regardless of their blood type.
Plasma often is referred to as the “gift of life” because it is the essential starting material needed to manufacture therapies that help thousands of people worldwide with rare, chronic diseases to live healthier, productive and fulfilling lives.
