COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma Program
Last updated: June 18, 2020
What is Investigational COVID-19 Convalescent Plasma?
Patients who have recovered from COVID-19 may have immune-boosting antibodies in their plasma; that plasma—called “COVID-19 convalescent plasma”—could be used to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients. The treatment is not proven but may have some impact in preliminary studies.
LifeStream is Accepting Convalescent Plasma Donations

Please Read Before Contacting Us:
- LifeStream does not test donors or blood products for ACTIVE COVID-19 infection.
- LifeStream Blood Bank is now testing all successful blood donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The antibody test will indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies because of previous exposure to the virus. This is not a test that tells a person whether or not they have a current COVID-19 infection. If you are feeling unwell, please do not donate blood. For more info about antibody testing, click here.
