Plasma is the protein-rich liquid in blood that helps other blood components circulate throughout our bodies.
Products made from donated plasma are used to help treat a variety of rare, life-threatening, chronic, and genetic conditions in patients like Terry, Jeff, and Brandon from Sudbury.
The plasma donation process is much like whole blood donation, but the difference is that a centrifuge device is used to separate the plasma from the rest of the whole blood components. We collect only the plasma and the rest of the blood is returned to your body all during the same process. The plasma donor center is a fun environment, with amazing staff, friendly volunteers, great food from local vendors, music and games.
Sudbury needs 125 new plasma donors this month.
Each month in Sudbury, we need 125 new donors and have more than 1,800 appointments to fill,” said Teri-Mai Armstrong, business development manager, Canadian Blood Services. “The generosity of Sudburians can make a life-changing difference for patients in need and we love welcoming new and returning donors to our plasma centre.”
The Sudbury plasma donor centre is open 6 days a week and located at 900 Lasalle boulevard.
Monday: 8am to 2pm
Tuesday – Friday: 7am – 7:30pm
