Our team of highly trained professionals works diligently to ensure that our donors are provided with the utmost care, safety, and respect during their time at our center, you will also be paid for your plasma donation. We use the latest technology and techniques combined with strict adherence to guidelines from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in order to provide you with an experience that meets & exceeds industry standards.
Brooklyn born with over 20 years of leadership experience in Public Education and Account Management. Being a Center Manager for Olgam Life provides me with the opportunity to collaborate with dynamic leaders and build positive relationships within the communities we operate in. I'm most excited to lead a Center were donors and staff are empowered. Outside of Olgam, I'm most excited for the New York Mets, my Grandma and my Chiweenie.
Our plasma donation process uses the highest safety standards in a sterile environment and a cutting edge automated system for faster donation times. Our staff receives ongoing training to help ensure the most pleasant experience possible for our donors.
You’ll be greeted by a receptionist who will review your documentation. If it’s your first visit you’ll be given a brief physical. You’ll be asked to fill out a Donor History Questionnaire, and a center technician will take a small blood sample from your finger to check your protein and hematocrit levels.
If you’re eligible to donate, you will be taken to the donation area and seated in a comfortable reclining chair/bed, blood will be drawn, plasma will be separated from your blood, and red blood cells will be returned to your body through a process called plasmapheresis. Fear not, the process strictly follows FDA guidelines and is totally safe.
And you’re done! The whole process for a first-time donation is less than two hours, and subsequent visits are around 90 minutes with a VIP Donor Program for any Returning Donors.
Your Olgam Life paycard will quickly reflect the added payment amount for your donation. Be sure that you drink plenty of fluids, eat a healthy meal and refrain from strenuous activities for the remainder of the day.
