What is plasma?
Plasma is vital and irreplaceable
Blood is not only red. The liquid part of blood, called “plasma”, is pale yellow. The red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets are bathed in this precious liquid, which is composed of 90% water.
Plasma is rich in proteins, such as immunoglobulins, clotting factors, albumin and fibrinogen. These proteins form the basis for several specialty drugs that are vital for the survival and well-being of thousands of people.
