Whole blood donation
The blood is collected as is and separated into its various components (plasma, platelets, red blood cells) in a laboratory.
The blood is separated during collection by a machine that collects only the required blood components (plasma, platelets) and returns the others to the donor.
Plasma donations are made in GLOBULE Sainte-Foy, Lebourgneuf and Brossard and in our PLASMAVIE in Gatineau, Saguenay, Sherbrooke and Trois-Rivières. It is possible to give plasma by apheresis once every six days.
