How Long Does It Take To Donate?

You can donate at any time during your local center’s business hours as a walk-in or with an appointment. We recommend that you give 2 hours for processing for your first donation. The total time for return visits on average takes about 90 minutes. The average time it takes for the machine to extract your plasma into a sterile pooling bottle and then return your red and white cells takes anywhere between 35 and 50 minutes.
