Our Covid-19 Response

From the moment you walk into our centers, we’re committed to your health and safety. Our donors are at the heart of what we do – by donating plasma, donors offer a lifeline to someone in need. At BPL Plasma, our highest priority is protecting the well-being of our donors and team members through increased safety measures and operational changes. As we respond to the impact from COVID-19, we wanted to share the steps we are taking to reduce the risk of exposure to coronavirus and keep our community safe.

KEEPING YOU SAFE WHILE YOU SAVE LIVES








INCREASED SAFETY MEASURES

We’ve implemented a number of preventative protocols according to CDC and FDA requirements, and will continue to do all we can to help navigate these rapidly evolving times. Watch the short video to learn more about the safety precautions we are taking.

 

PLASMA COLLECTION CENTERS

In March 2020, the US Department of Homeland Security designated plasma collection centers part of the nation’s critical healthcare infrastructure. BPL Plasma provides an essential service by collecting life-saving plasma from healthy donors to help patients in need of specialized medical treatments created from plasma.

BPL Plasma Centers Are:

  • Clean, well-controlled, and supervised establishments
  • Subject to federal/state quality and safety requirements
  • Governed by rigorous industry health and safety standards

Although our plasma centers are staffed by highly trained individuals, they are not doctors’ offices. Those who are not feeling well are urged to stay home to protect the health and safety of others. Eligible donors include most healthy adults between ages 18-65 who weigh at least 110 pounds and are residents of the local community. As a bonus, you’re compensated for each donation!

YOUR DONATION MATTERS

Plasma donors save lives. Plasma cannot be produced in laboratories or artificial environments – it can only be obtained from healthy adults. The plasma we collect at our 51 donation centers nationwide is processed into a variety of life-saving therapeutics benefiting thousands of people every day. Plasma donations are used to produce medicines that treat patients with rare, chronic diseases and disorders, such as primary immunodeficiency, hemophilia, and genetic lung disease, as well as in the treatment of trauma, burns, and shock.

Whether you’re a first-time or returning donor, you can locate a donation center near you for more information.
