Why Donate?

From organ transplants to heart surgeries, today’s advanced medical care relies on blood transfusions. When one person donates a unit of blood, it can be separated into individual components to save multiple lives. Blood donors like you help meet the daily transfusion needs of cancer and surgery patients, accident and burn victims, newborns and mothers delivering babies, AIDS and sickle cell anemia patients, and many more.

Plateletpheresis (Apheresis) Donors

What is Plateletpheresis?

Sometimes, patients need only a specific part of a donor's blood. To help these people, donations of individual blood components such as platelets or plasma are sometimes required. Such donations are known as apheresis donations.

The extraction of only platelets from a donor's blood is known as plateletpheresis, while plasmapheresis refers to the extraction of a donor's plasma.

Is this safe?

The Apheresis process has been evaluated and approved by the FDA, and all plastics and needles coming into contact with you are used once and discarded. At no time during the procedure is the blood being returned to you detached from the needle in your arm, so there is no risk of returning the wrong blood to you.

Plateletpheresis procedures take about 90 minutes, but you should allow another 30 minutes for staff to obtain your medical history. Every effort will be made to make the experience relaxing and enjoyable.
