Additionally, women who are at least 5'5 and 150 lbs. and men who are at least 5'1 130 lbs. can donate invaluable red blood cells. The procedure takes 5 to 10 minutes longer and utilizes a smaller needle than the traditional donation. The ALYx procedure extracts red blood cells and returns your platelets and plasma. If you are interested, please ask a technician at the Blood Drive.
Walk-ins are more than welcome. E-mail juniors Francesca_DeGeronimo@fa.org, Mya_Guiler-Papin@fa.org or Jocelyn_Cedeno@fa.org with any questions.
