Plasma Donation Regulations in Wyoming

Wyoming plasmapheresis centers are licensed and regulated by the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) and must comply with strict FDA regulations for donor safety and product quality.

To decrease the potential for transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and variant CJD (vCJD) by blood and blood products, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a guidance for industry, Revised Preventive Measures to Reduce the Possible Risk of Transmission of Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) and Variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (vCJD) by Blood and Blood Products.

Where to Donate Plasma in Texas?

A: You can donate plasma at a center off of Fredericksburg TX, not too far off 410 inside the loop. For first time donations you can look in one of those job magazines you find in any Jim's restaurant and get extra cash for your first donation. I think it says make 80 dollars your first week.

 I currently donate at Houston BioLife, and they're very helpful. For your first donation, you receive $20 and $35 for you second donation in one week. 

Other Paid Plasma Donation Centers:

1.) Biomet USA 2580 Gus Thomasson Rd. Dallas, TX 75228 214-321-6777 

Pay per donation: 
The first donation you receive $20, and the second and subsequent donations you get $30. 

Frequency of donation: 
Your blood is returned to you during a plasma donation so you are able to donate twice a week. 

Test prior to donating: 
On the first visit they do a medical history, brief physical, and check iron & protein levels. After that they just check iron and protein levels and run a quick check of vitals- temperature, blood pressure and pulse. 

Length of time for donation: 
For the first donation it might take 2 hours, but then after that it is very quick and only takes 45 minutes.

2.) Austin Bio Med 14415 Owen Tech Blvd Austin, TX 78728 (512) 251-8855

It's located off of Owen Tech, Near Wells Branch, and pays about $50.00 a week for two donations. Your first visit will take about 3 hours due to a screening process (including a drug screen). After that it will be like 1.5 hours a visit. You can only donate twice a week. First donation of the week is about $20. Second is about $30.

What Happens When You Donate Plasma

Plasmapheresis is a blood donation process in which you only donate the liquid portion of your blood, the plasma. The cellular portion of your blood is separated from the plasma by an automated instrument that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). As part of this same automated process, the cellular portion is returned to you and the liquid plasma portion is retained in a special collection container.
