Plasma makes up 55% of your blood. Plasma is the liquid part of the blood carrying antibodies, clotting factors and proteins through the body.
Plasma is often referred to as “the gift of life,” because it is used to treat medical emergencies such as trauma, shock and burns. The proteins in your plasma can also be extracted to create medications for rare chronic conditions such as autoimmune disorders and hemophilia. In most cases, plasma proteins cannot be manufactured synthetically, so proteins from your donated plasma are the only source for medical therapies for millions of people each year.
