Donor Screening

Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood.1

People of all ages and backgrounds: accident and burn victims, heart surgery and organ transplant patients, those battling cancer or living with sickle cell disease, rely on a safe and readily available blood and plasma supply. The impact of blood donation is immense. One donation can potentially save three lives– and each year 4.5 million lives are saved by blood transfusions.1

The United States supplies 70% of the world’s plasma.2

Plasma is essential in treating both common and rare infirmities from cancer to trauma and burn victims, to hemophilia, and immune disorders.  The therapies made possible by plasma proteins save lives every day and are essential to improving the lives of hundreds of thousand people suffering from immune deficiency and hemophilia.  It takes 1,200 plasma donations to treat one hemophilia patient, and 130 plasma donations to treat one patient with a primary immune deficiency.
