Offers Plasma Donors Opportunities to Help Others and Earn Money

WILSON, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ImmunoTek Bio Centers opens its newest ImmunoTek Plasma location on Tuesday, February 21, 2023, inviting potential donors to visit the state-of-the-art facility to learn more about plasma donations. The world’s largest independent blood-plasma donation center operator has selected Wilson as home to its 76th plasma donation center.

By removing the red and white blood cells from the blood, what remains is the golden liquid called plasma. Blood-plasma helps create medicines and plasma-based therapies that treat patients with various diseases and disorders, including shock and burn patients, bleeding disorders, transplant patients, those suffering from autoimmune diseases, and many others. Scientists cannot synthesize blood-plasma, so centers like the new ImmunoTek center in Wilson are vital to keeping up with the worldwide demand for plasma.

The United States provides 2/3 of the world’s plasma, and demand increases by 6% – 8% yearly. “We are excited to add Wilson to the ImmunoTek family and to know that our donors are doing their part to help others. While we compensate donors for their time, the real gift is that donated plasma saves lives,” said Blair McKinney, Chief Operating Officer of ImmunoTek Bio Centers. “In addition to donor compensation, the new ImmunoTek donation center will create new jobs in Wilson, and we anticipate making a $5 million economic impact yearly.”

To be eligible to donate plasma, a medical screening is conducted by in-house medical professionals, along with a medical history and physical exam. Donating plasma is much like making a blood donation. A safe, sterile, automated process called plasmapheresis separates plasma from the blood and returns the remaining red blood cells to the donor. Donors can give plasma up to twice a week.

“This blood-plasma donation center in Wilson is a win-win for our community. We bring in new jobs, our donors receive compensation, and they help save lives too,” said Lenora Jones, Center Manager of the new Wilson center. “We look forward to educating people about the vital need for plasma and how their donation can benefit others worldwide.”

ImmunoTek Plasma’s new Wilson location is at 925 Ward Blvd, Ste B, and will operate Tuesday – Saturday. Walk-in donors are welcome for their first donation, and subsequent donations are by appointment only.
