Donate Plasma with an Autoimmune Disorder?

Have you tested positive for an autoimmune condition? You have the opportunity to make up to $1000 per week helping the medical research community by donating plasma at a local FDA-licensed plasmapheresis facility. I felt it would be a good idea to provide better definitions for autoimmune disorders and associated antibodies, so I've listed several below for your reference!


What is Plasmapheresis?


The plasmapheresis process is very safe and is similar to donating blood. Only FDA approved processes are used. If you are suitable for the program, before you 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.


What You Will Need to Donate Plasma:
· 2 pieces of identification. Photo I.D. and proof of your Social Security Number or 
IRS Number
· proof of current address
· to be at least 18 years old (17 years old with written parental consent)
· to weigh at least 110 lbs.
· to be negative for Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, and HIV (unless participating in those programs)


Plasma Donation Programs:
The following list describes the programs for which we have an urgent need for donors. There are also other conditions not listed for which you may qualify. Call 888-806-5215 or email donate@seracare.com to find out if you qualify. You can also google the website "SeraCare" or www.idonateplasma.com to submit your information that way. All information stays confidential and the company is highly HIPAA compliant.

  1. About six months ago I started looking for a medication. I ran across thyroid natural supplements and ordered a two month supply, I no longer have prior symptoms and my hair has grown a lot too!! I really feel that it is working for me.
