How Much Does Biomat USA Pay for Plasma?
Donor compensation at Biomat USA varies depending on the location and how often you donate. For an idea of the payment range, we contacted Biomat USA locations in Illinois, Tennessee, and Arizona. We found that the average payment for new donors usually ranges from $40 to $75, while returning donors can earn between $50 and $75. Some locations also run specials with extra compensation for donating during a certain month or referring new donors.
Since compensation varies, it’s best to contact your local Biomat USA to find out exactly what you can expect to earn. Note that you can only donate plasma twice within seven days and must leave 48 hours between donations. This means you can donate between four and eight times per month, earning around $150 to $300 via a GRIFOLS prepaid Visa debit card.
Donor Requirements & Process
Biomat USA locations are operated by GRIFOLS and follow the same donor criteria as other GRIFOLS donation centers:
- Must weigh at least 110 pounds (find out where to weigh yourself for free)
- Must be between 18 and 69 years old
- Must be in good health
- Must present a valid photo ID (driver’s license, state ID, passport, or military ID), proof of address, and proof of your Social Security number; note that your name must match on these documents.
The donation process includes four to five steps. First, you’ll check in and provide the documents listed above, as well as answer a questionnaire about your health and medical history. You’ll then receive a health screening, including a blood sample and a check of your vital signs. If it’s your first time donating (and around once a year after that), a specialist will give you a physical exam. Once you pass all of the health checks, you’ll complete your donation. Biomat USA will compensate you at the end of the appointment.
