WCBS Introduces Plasma Donation – You are Golden. Donate Plasma.

In order to meet the increasing demand for plasma-derived medicinal products (PDMP), WCBS has recently introduced source plasma donations at our three fixed site clinics in Long Street, N1 City Mall and Blue Route Mall. This plasma is supplied to the National Bioproducts Institute (NBI) in Durban for the manufacture of PDMPs such as intravenous immunoglobulins, albumin and freeze-dried plasma. There has been a marked increase internationally in the use of intravenous immunoglobulins for the management of a wide array of medical conditions, including neurological and autoimmune diseases.

For more information about plasma donation, please contact Sr Kim Strutt, Manager – Donor Collections at 021 507 6355 or Kim@wcbs.org.za
