Pneumonia (Mycoplasma, Mycoplasma Pneumonaie) donors are greatly needed to provide researchers with the antibodies needed to make positive controls in diagnostic tests for patients seeking diagnosis.
Since these donations are used only for research and diagnostic purposes, we are able to compensate you for your time & effort. You can earn up to $1000 per week!
The plasma donation process typically leaves you free from the normal blood donation side effects of feeling dizzy or weak. Your body regenerates the plasma collected within 24 hours, meaning you can donate up to twice a week.
