Normal, healthy blood samples, plasma, and other biological specimens from people are required for medical research. These specimens are used to support the development of in vitro diagnostic test kits, treatments, vaccines and cures. Blood samples from donors who do not currently have or have a history of infectious, chronic illnesses or autoimmune diseases are eligible.
We’re currently recruiting normal, healthy blood donors to help these research strives with a compensated donation:
Whenever a laboratory test is run for viral infections and chronic illnesses or autoimmune disorders, the FDA requires quality control groups to be measured against the sample to ensure accuracy. These quality control samples must come from human plasma with indicative markers for the disease. Since these donations are used for research and test kits, donors are compensated for their time and donation. Compensation per visit depends on the donation needed.
Participate in paid plasma and biological specimen donations
If you have been clinically diagnosed with a viral infection by a healthcare professional or are currently being treated for a chronic illness or autoimmune disorder, you may be able to participate in our plasma or whole blood donation programs. Be sure to consult your primary care physician for educational resources on these conditions. Documentation of the diagnosis and/or treatment may be required.
See the list below for qualifying disease indications, click the appropriate link to find out more information, and fill out the Pre-Screening form if you feel you may qualify.
Earn a bonus when you refer a friend or relative who completes their first donation: for whole blood donations receive a $10 bonus; for Plasma or Leukapheresis receive a $25 bonus.
A referral bonus applies only to a new, first-time donor, age 18+, that references you at their donation. Bonuses will be issued at that time or during your next visit. Remember, there is no limit to the number of donors that you may refer!
