What is the difference between donating blood and donating plasma?
Blood is composed of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. Plasma makes up approximately 55 percent of the volume of blood. About 7 percent of a person’s weight is blood. An average sized man has about 12 pints of blood and an average woman has about 9 pints.
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.
How often can plasma be donated?
Plasma is quickly replaced by the body, normally within 24 hours. A person may donate no more than 2 times every 7 days with at least a 1 day interval between donations.
How long does it take to donate plasma?
The first visit takes 2 to 3 hours, due to screening to ensure that the donor meets health standards. Subsequent visits will usually last slightly over 1 hour.
