I have been donating plasma at biomat for 9 years and have never regretted it. I have been doing it for about 12 years went to a few of the CSL Octopherma all of witchbi was never happy with ether because of the pay ether because it was not that much or they pay you on weight(CLS) and for me I weigh 145-155lbs and would never make what Biomat payed. I have NEVER had them give me a hematoma/bruise in 9 years 2 times a week faithfully going witch I love CLS did this to me and I passed out then had to have the neidle put in the other arm to get my $15 pay........never again. I moved to the Sandy one from down town because of the daycare for donors to utilize wile they donate and it is FREE!!!!! After your first donations you can drop your kids off every time you donate and they watch movies and play games color all sorts of thing. It is also one of the cleanest out of all the others Sandy and Salt lake 6th S location are awesome plus where else will you make $70 a week $280 a month +bonuses for about 45-90 min per donation of your time 2 times a week. Think about that $280 for 12 hours at most a month untaxed money just think about it and then go to biomat. 9yer vet saving lives here!!!
I've been donating here for a year. I've had some good experiences, but lately it's been frustrating. The online system hasn't been working to make new appointments, so it's difficult to schedule. I came in with an appointment I scheduled online. They had no record of my appointment. The person I saw first had me fill out a bunch of forms, and when I brought the finished forms back, a different person was there who told me I actually didn't need to fill out the forms, and promptly threw it all away. We proceeded with the rest of my screening/physical, including a finger stick, vitals, urine sample, & a long interview with close to 100 detailed questions. They read me a 5-6 page document word for word. It was a very lengthy screening. Near the end they asked if I'd been in a research study in the past year. I told them yes, I'd been in an study 5 months ago where I'd ridden a stationary bike for 6 sessions. I was told I would have to produce the entire informed consent/IRB documents on the spot or I couldn't donate that day. I had no idea or warning before coming in that this would ever be needed or relevant. The study involved no meds, vaccines, or anything that would affect my donation in any way. I've been donating 2x a week since the study with no problems. I was told if I wanted to come back and donate later, I'd have to bring the documents & undergo the entire process over again. To me this was an outrageous and unreasonable request. There is no way I'd be able to comply without prior notice, not to mention it was a complete waste of my time. Then to be told I would have to repeat it all next time was ridiculous. The interviewer admitted that this is an oversight the company needs to fix, but it's unacceptable to me to demand documents no one could reasonably be expected to have with them, and then punish the donor for not having said documents by deferring them & forcing them to undergo extensive screening again. It's not worth the $25. I won't be going back.
I was turned away after waiting 20 minutes because the veins in my left arm needed to be "stronger". I have never had this issue at any another plasma donation center, in fact after leaving there, my left arm was used to donate in favor of my right arm at Octapharma Plasma down the street (I just have deep veins, a more experienced phlebotomist has no problem sticking me)!! On the bright side, I am quite happy I left, because Octapharma Plasma paid $75 for my first donation and I will end up taking home a total of $300 for my first 5 visits!! I would highly recommend you stay away from Biomat USA, and I would definitely recommend Octapharma Plasma as an alternative!
Great facility and great people! With on exception - man by the name of "Bill" - annoying to talk to and gives you bad advice that is not asked - and to top it off - he has a towel around his neck at all time and sweats and smells. I don't think he should be doing this type of sanitary work in that condition!! Give him a job in the back away from the public
- 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.
