Yes. My order was given by Jersey Shore to a specific frum patient in the icu. No idea who though. As far as amount of blood taken, they took maybe 3oz in total. The blood that they take gets drawn out and the plasma is then filtered through a machine. Once that happens they put the blood back and draw again. They did that about 4 or five times. A little uncomfortable when they put back the blood as they also give saline which feels real cold. Other than that was a great experience.
Thank you for the detailed information!

My mother was 320 which is lowest to donate. My father was 2880.
I'm not who you think I am.

I think you may have had it, but not intense enough to build up strong enough antibodies needed to donate

It  was through lev rochel bikur cholim. I have to add that they were an absolute pleasure to deal with. They took care of everything and was super smooth.

Which tests are considered to be relatively trustworthy, and which are more suspect? Mt Sinai keeps pushing our appointments, but if I'm gonna find somewhere else to test/donate, I'd rather it be a more 'accurate' test.
