Once a donor is accepted, our experienced phlebotomists prepare the plasma collection device, known as a plasmapheresis machine, with a new, sterile kit. We remove only the plasma from your blood before sending it to a lab for processing. Lab testing ensures that it is safe to use in life-saving medicines for patients in emergency care, fighting bleeding disorders, or suffering from other medical conditions.
