Physical Exam: On the first donation, and annually there after, a physical exam will be performed on site by a trained physician to ensure donor remains in good health.

Donating: A brief health screening will be performed at each donation to determine donor’s overall health and to ensure that all eligibility criteria is met. Once eligibility is established, the donor will be escorted to a donation bed where a trained, qualified phlebotomist prepares the donor for the donation. The plasma unit is collected by an automated plasmapheresis machine that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

I think about the people that are suffering and, knowing I can do something to help them, makes donating so worth my time. Rheumatoid Arthritis is a debilitating disease that affects so many people and my plasma can make a difference in their lives. It’s such a small sacrifice to contribute to the well-being of others.

Since I had complicated pregnancies from not receiving the Rho(D) shot, it feels good knowing that my plasma donation will help someone else not have to suffer the same. I enjoy donating plasma at Kamada! I feel like my safety and comfort are their priority and each one of the staff members are caring and very personable.
