The following information was provided and sponsored by BioLife Plasma Services - Maple Grove. BioLife Plasma Services is an industry leader in the collection of high quality plasma that is processed into life-saving plasma-based therapies.

Everyday, plasma is processed into a wide variety of life-saving therapies that benefit thousands of people.

Plasma-based therapeutics are used in the treatment of serious disorders such as hemophilia and immune system deficiencies, and to treat victims of shock and burn. For example, those who suffer from certain forms of hemophilia lack the natural clotting factors that help stop bleeding after sustaining acute or other injuries.

Plasma-based therapeutics are used to treat people with this disorder so that they may lead normal, active lives. In addition, hospitals and emergency rooms all over the world use plasma derived albumin in the treatment of traumatic injuries such as shock and severe burns.

It is important to remember that plasma is not a substance that can be produced in a laboratory or some other artificial environment. It can only be obtained from healthy adults. Plasma donors help save lives.
