Why are Antibodies Needed?
Generally, plasmas, rich with antibodies, are the key raw materials for pharmaceutical and diagnostic products manufactured by major healthcare companies around the world. The medicines, drugs, diagnostic controls and test kits derived from your donated antibody rich plasma enable individuals with life-threatening illnesses to live healthier lives.
The donation process is very safe and is similar to donating blood. Only FDA approved processes are used. If you are suitable for the program, before your agree to donate you will receive a detailed packet from us explaining the entire process. Additionally, on the day of your scheduled appointment, you will have the process explained to you again by a medical professional. All of these steps are taken to determine that every donor is suitable to donate and that every donor is comfortable with their decision to participate. On your first visit you will receive a brief physical examination. Your well-being is our primary concern. Anything that comes in contact with your blood or plasma is sterile, prepackaged, disposable, and used only once - for YOU.
