To become a donor, you must:
- Be 18 or older
- Weigh at least 110 lbs
- Be in general good health
As a new donor, you must:
- Possess a document with your Social Security number or an INS number
- Possess a valid picture ID (driver’s license, student or military ID) with your current local address
As a New Donor, it is Important That You Donate Two Times
Your second donation provides two sets of test results and health screenings to assure the safety and quality of the plasma supply. If you only donate one time, your plasma donation will not be used to help save lives.
You can donate two times within a 7 day period with at least 1 day between donations. Your body replenishes the plasma within 24 to 48 hours.
Certain circumstances could preclude you from donating plasma, such as recent tattoos, body piercing, prolonged residency in Europe, cancer and/or other medical conditions.
