In 1950, Dr. Jose Antonio Grifols Jr. was an early pioneer of the plasmapheresis technique, the process of extracting human plasma. This technique was embraced by the global medical community and remains one of the most frequently used plasma extraction processes. The donation process, or plasmapheresis, takes as little as 90 minutes and is performed using automatic equipment and other sterile, non-reusable materials in a plasma donation center. Collecting plasma is the first step in the process of making specialized protein therapies. We rely on individuals to donate their plasma to provide source material for protein therapies.. Donate plasma and help save lives! Find out how becoming a plasma donor can make a difference for patients and help you earn extra money. Our plasma donation center specializes in the collection of protein-rich plasma from donors to help create life-saving therapies for patients with diseases,such as immune deficiencies,hemophilia,genetic emphysema,hepatitis,tetanus and rabies. We encourage donors to donate on a routine basis,and we compensate them for their time.
