How Much Does Biomat USA Pay for Plasma?

Donor compensation at Biomat USA varies depending on the location and how often you donate.[1] 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.[2]

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.[3] This means you can donate between four and eight times per month, earning around $150 to $300 via a GRIFOLS prepaid Visa debit card.[4]

Donor Requirements & Process

Biomat USA locations are operated by GRIFOLS and follow the same donor criteria as other GRIFOLS donation centers:[3]

  • 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.[5]

      Hi J Mac,

      The pay schedule varies between each donation center. For example, the center in Athens GA pays $35 for the second donation each week. If you’re a new donor, you’ll receive $50 for your first five donations. For information specific to your nearest location, your best bet is to call them directly and ask about their pay schedule.

      Hi Sarah,

      According to the Biomat USA website, your card is “automatically reloaded with that day’s donation payment.”

      Hi Candace,

      Biomat provided this information on their site: “Are you Rh Negative? This special program collects plasma from donors with the Rho D antibody and uses it to make Rho(D) Immune Globulin, an injection given to Rh-negative mothers during pregnancy, and immediately after, in order to prevent thousands of infant deaths each year due to Rh incompatibility. If your plasma contains this antibody, you can help save babies’ lives with each plasma donation.” When asked, they said compensation is dependent upon a number of factors, but it looks like they are looking for people like you!

      Hi Melissa,

      Rates can and do vary over time, so to find out the current compensation levels, it’s worth giving your local center a quick call. You can reach the Altamonte Springs donation center at (407) 628-4248 during regular business hours (6AM – 6:30PM Monday – Friday; 6AM – 4PM Saturday; closed Sunday). I hope this helps!
