Plasma takes up to 55% of the overall component of your blood. It is a clear fluid that plays the key role of transporting proteins, red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets throughout your body. Hepatitis plasma donation at Access Clinical will help you donate plasma full of antibodies to those who are suffering from Hepatitis.
As it is the largest component in human blood, it is essentially used to create therapies and medicines for patients suffering from Hepatitis. Hepatitis plasma donation at Access Clinical is more time consuming than donating blood because of the aphaeresis procedure. It can take anywhere between 1 to 2 hours for the entire procedure to be completed.
After your registration process is complete, you will have to go through a pre screening procedure that will determine your eligibility to donate. We will examine the hemoglobin level of your blood and guide you through a physical examination.
We encourage you to share any illness, disease and all other medical history with us before the procedure starts so it can be a safe and easy process for you as well as the patient that is going to receive your plasma. At this stage, you can ask us any questions that you have and we will answer them gladly to you. After this, we will help you understand the donation procedure and ask for your consent.
You will be seated in a chair and your donation process will start by connecting you to a plasmapheresis machine. The process in which you will be donating plasma is called apheresis. Your plasma is separated from your blood in this process and all your red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are sent back to your body. Access Clinical urges all healthy donors not to think twice before donating.
Our hepatitis plasma donation process is carried out under the strictest surveillance and ensures that donors are comfortable throughout the procedure. If you meet the eligibility criteria, you will be able to donate once in every 7 days at Access Clinical.
