Plasma Collection Center at Mount Sinai Health System

With millions of individuals around the world infected with SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19 disease, there is a critical need to develop a therapeutic for treatment or prevention.

The Mount Sinai Health System, in collaboration with Emergent BioSolutions and ImmunoTek Bio Centers, has established a Plasma Collection Center at The Mount Sinai Hospital to advance the development of such a potential therapeutic. The center will collect plasma rich in SARS-CoV-2 antibodies from individuals who have recovered from COVID-19. The plasma will be purified into hyperimmune globulin, which will be used in clinical research trials at Mount Sinai and elsewhere to test its ability to potentially help prevent and treat COVID-19.

Because we are very grateful for the commitment to plasma donation and appreciate the time commitment donors have made, we are now offering $150 compensation for donors at the second donation and $50 for each subsequent donation.

How to Donate

If you are age 18 to 65, have tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, have fully recovered, and have a high concentration of antibodies (titers of 1:960 or higher), you may be a candidate for plasma donation. If you are interested in helping others by donating your plasma, please complete the prescreening questionnaire.

If you meet the qualifications to donate, a member of the Mount Sinai team will contact you to schedule a donation appointment.
