Here in Belgium too.
The machine separates the plasma from the rest of the blood in
real-time, and gives the latter back to you when its buffer is full.
You don't have to wait as long after a plasma donation, because the
impact on your body is lower. In Belgium it's two weeks after a plasma
donation, and a few months after a whole blood donation.

The closest I could find is healthcare=blood_bank, in the proposal
page for Healthcare 1.0, with a link to "blood bank" on Wikipedia[1]
(where it says "A blood bank is a cache or bank of blood or blood
components, gathered as a result of blood donation or collection,
stored and preserved for later use in blood transfusion.").
The word "blood" is never used in Healthcare 2.0 as far as I can see.
