What is Plasma

Your blood is made up of a liquid portion and a cellular portion. The cellular portion contains mostly blood cells. Plasma is the liquid portion of your blood. It is quickly and easily restored by your body. It is mostly water, but also contains hundreds of vital proteins and antibodies that help fight infection and control bleeding. Your donated plasma is the source material used to make life-saving therapies.
