What are platelets? Platelets are blood cells that help control bleeding; they are the body's "Band-Aids." What is the platelet donation process? Platelets are collected by a process called apheresis. Apheresis (ay-fur-ee-sis) is a special kind of blood donation that involves giving one component of blood, usually platelets. During an apheresis donation, blood is drawn from your arm and sent through sterile tubing into a centrifuge located in a cell-separator machine. The machine spins the blood to separate the platelets from the other components. The platelets are collected and the remaining components are returned to you. Only a small portion of your blood is in the machine at anytime (less than a cup). Once the donation process is completed, we ask you to sit back and relax for 15 minutes and enjoy an assortment of refreshments. From when you walk in to when you walk out, it takes approximately 2 to 3 hours to donate platelets. *Some restrictions may apply.
