How Plasma Helps

Plasma Donation Across the Globe

In more than 900 specialized donation centers located in the U.S., Europe, and Canada, individuals may donate plasma through a process called plasmapheresis. Plasmapheresis is a sterile, self-contained, automated process where plasma is separated from red blood cells and other cellular components of blood which are then returned to the donor.

Source plasma collection in the U.S. is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)
