Iowa State engineers develop an at-home COVID-19 testing system.

Iowa State is partnering with LifeServe Blood Center to host the first plasma donation event of the semester.

The event will be from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday in the Cardinal Room of the Memorial Union.

Individuals who have tested positive for and recovered from COVID-19 are encouraged to donate, and those that believe they may have had coronavirus without a positive test result may be eligible for antibody testing.

An individual that has had COVID-19 may have antibodies that may be able to help ill patients recover.

One donation can provide four plasma products to be used as treatment for COVID-19 patients. Since March, Mary Greeley Medical Center has transfused over 100 plasma products to patients fighting COVID-19.

Those interested in donating can sign up by filling out this assessment form. Questions can be answered by texting "ISU" to 999-777.
