Biomat USA (Grifols) is such a awesome business. I love that we help people just by donating our plasma. I really like the staff, they are constantly striving fora better experience than the last. Everyone seems to enjoy their weekly visits. I know I personally will continue to donate for as long as I live in the tricities area. Thanks so much for great experience...

I can't say enough about this place, not only am I helping to save lives, but I am also compensated for my time. Biomat Kennewick gets an A+ in my book!

Staff were all very friendly, I felt very comfortable at this place. Nice waiting room, lots of big tv's to watch, and always played good movies. Gave me crackers and Gatorade. I'd definitely recommend this place!
Tips & Advices
One study cited by the National Institutes of Health found only 1.2 percent of blood donors experienced any kind of adverse reaction from giving blood. The most common side effects from giving blood are relatively mild:
  • Lightheadedness upon standing is common. Donors are encouraged to rest for at least 15 minutes after the procedure while drinking water and eating a small snack. Some donors find they become nauseous after the procedure, but this should subside quickly.
  • Pain and some bruising around the injection site is common. Pain should be mild, but it is normal for bruising to persist for several days.
  • For a few days afterward, the loss of blood may induce dizziness or feelings of weakness when performing strenuous activity. Donors are advised to avoid physical exertion for 24 hours after the procedure, and to be cautious when exercising for the following week.
Very rarely, blood donors may vomit or faint immediately after the procedure. This is generally benign and will resolve itself within hours. Donors should seek medical attention if they experience significant pain or tingling in their arm and around the injection site, or if bruising does not subside within a week. If a donor shows signs of a cold or flu in the days following the procedure, they should call the blood center since this may make the blood sample unsafe to use.
By definition, blood donation is voluntary and done without compensation. Some blood banks do offer cash or other rewards for giving blood. Whether donors are paid or not, blood banks typically serve as intermediaries between blood sources and hospitals. Even voluntarily donated blood is usually tested, separated and sold to medical services for use in blood transfusions and other procedures.
Blood donations are considered safe when performed by trained professionals who follow all the necessary procedures. In healthy donors, side effects are generally mild (see below), and serious complications are rare.
Different organizations have their own restrictions on who is eligible to give blood. The most common requirements stipulate donors must be old enough to give legal consent (17 in most states) and should be in good physical health. Most organizations prohibit donations from people with diseases that can be transmitted through blood, such as HIV and hepatitis. Beyond that, organizations may prevent donations from people who have traveled to or lived in certain countries where there is a greater risk of disease. There might be additional restrictions in place as eligibility for blood donation is at the sole discretion of the organization collecting it.
Blood centers typically  allow eligible donors to undergo a whole blood donation once every 16 weeks (56 days). Donations through apheresis are allowed every seven days, up to 24 times per year.
