What’s it like to donate plasma?


The process for donating plasma is similar to donating blood. The main difference between a whole blood and plasma donation is the collection method—apheresis. Only the plasma portion of your blood is collected; the rest (red cells, white cells and platelets) is returned to you.

Why do we need more donated plasma in Canada?

Why do we need more donated plasma in Canada?


As part of our role, Canadian Blood Services is responsible for monitoring the amount of human plasma available to meet the needs of patients in Canada. For some time, we have been seeing a steady increase in the use of and demand for plasma-derived products in Canada and around the globe.

By increasing the amount of raw material (source plasma) we collect from donors through our existing infrastructure, as well as making plans to collect more in the future, we are striking the right balance for patients.
