Learn more about our efforts to collect convalescent plasma

Convalescent plasma - It's in you!
Within blood plasma are our antibodies, cells that learn and grow in order to protect our bodies from things like diseases and viruses. The way someone beats COVID-19 is their body develops the antibodies needed, and better yet, they're able to share those antibodies with people still sick by donating plasma.

Plasma has been designated as a "Critical Infrastructure Industry"

Did you know that the United States Government has listed plasma donation as a "Critical Infrastructure Industry"? Without consistent plasma donations, people around the world would go without the plasma-based medication they need to treat diseases like hemophilia and various immunodeficiencies. It also means people who live in areas with stay-at-home mandates are allowed to travel to and from donation appointments.
