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 as 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. Plasma donors can print an essential and critical travel letter allowing them to travel to our centers to donate life-saving 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!
