    So i decided to do some good donate plasma and plateletes or however you spell it. I was just wondering if it's anything like donating plasma for money in how much time it takes. Because they said on the phone the process would take like 2 hours and i only remember being there for about 20 or 30 minutes.
    Anyone know how long this takes if your really squeezing the ball.

    I have only donated blood and it does take about a half hour or less.

    Do they have a website you could look this up on?

    i talked to them on the phone and they said two hours. I was just wondering if anyone here has done it and if it was like donating plasma for money cause i only remember that taking like 20-30 minutes.
  4. I would donate plasma if they gave me one tv for free. They can sell the rest of the tv's they make with the plasma.

    It takes a little longer to donate plasma because it has to be filtered through a centrifuge.

    Maybe the 2 hours includes the screening as well? The actual time is about an hour to do.

    I am not sure if it is the same where you live, here if you have donated plasma within the last 57 days they do a mini medical to ensure you are fine to donate. That could be a longer wait time also.
