To be eligible to donate, you must be in good health and meet other requirements in place for donors of blood for transfusion unless you are participating in a research study that allows persons with a specific medical condition to participate. To participate in a research study, you must read, understand and sign an informed consent document that will be explained to you in detail by a member of our staff.
Individuals who make blood donations and participate in our research studies are compensated for their time and effort. Prior to scheduling a blood product collection, the specific compensation schedule is provided to the individual. Compensation varies based on the type of blood products collected along with the amount of time needed to perform the collection. Some studies require a participant to make several visits to Key Biologics while others require only a single visit. Visits can take from 45 minutes to four hours based on the study and the activity associated with the visit.
