descriptions of the term:

Plasma donation

The plasma donation means the donation of blood plasma for the purpose of obtaining various coagulation-active plasma preparations. The blood plasma is separated from the red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets during plasmapheresis. These cellular components of the blood are usually returned to the donor.

A plasma donation is possible much more often than the known whole blood donation, namely every fifth day.
