Facts & Research


We are currently the primary donor pool of convalescent COVID-19 blood plasma in the NY region and among the largest in the USA.

We are partnered with medical affiliates including the New York Blood Center, Mayo Clinic and Johns Hopkins.

Thousands of plasma donations have occurred or have been scheduled. We continue to add regions beyond the NY/NJ area.

Each plasma donation = 3 patients treated. Doctors on the front lines report markedly higher chances of recovery with convalescent COVID-19 plasma treatment.
