Do you currently have Mono?
If you, do we need you to donate plasma to help others… Plasma is a crucial component in the manufacturing of the very test kit(s) that were used to diagnose you. Without donors like you these kits may not be available when physicians, hospitals and laboratories need them to diagnose someone else.
Plasma is very similar to donating whole blood but you can do it more frequently (2x in a 7-day period) because you are getting your red blood cells back thru the process. Participants who qualify will earn $200 per donation and any/all travel related expenses to get you to/from a donation center are pre-paid by us and you still earn your compensation. Most donors have temporary relief of symptoms since we are taking the plasma part of the red blood cells which house the antibodies lessening the number of antibodies for mono from your system.

What is Plasma? Plasma is the largest part of your blood. It makes up more than half (about 55%) of its overall content. When separated from the rest of the blood, plasma is a light-yellow liquid. Plasma carries water, salts and enzymes. The main role of plasma is to take nutrients, hormones, and proteins to the parts of the body that need it. Cells also put their waste products into the plasma. The plasma then helps remove this waste from the body. Blood plasma also carries all parts of the blood through your circulatory system. Plasma is a critical part of the treatment for many serious health problems. This is why there are blood drives asking people to donate blood plasma. Along with water, salt, and enzymes, plasma also contains important components. These include antibodies, clotting factors, and the proteins albumin and fibrinogen. When you donate blood, healthcare providers can separate these vital parts from your plasma. These parts can then be concentrated into various products. These products are then used as treatments that can help save the lives of people suffering from burns, shock, trauma, and other medical emergencies. The proteins and antibodies in plasma are also used in therapies for rare chronic conditions. These include autoimmune disorders and hemophilia. People with these conditions can live long and productive lives because of the treatments. In fact, some health organizations call plasma “the gift of life.” Donating Plasma If you want to donate plasma to help others in need, you will go through a screening process. This is to make sure your blood is healthy and safe. If you qualify as a plasma donor, you’ll spend about an hour and a half at a clinic on every follow-up visit. During the actual blood donation process, your blood is drawn through a needle placed in a vein in one arm. A special machine separates the plasma and often the platelets from your blood sample. This process is called plasmapheresis. The remaining red blood cells and other blood components are then returned to your body, along with a little saline (salt) solution. .
