EUROPLASMA - Save lives by donating plasma!

Some of our centres are opened again!

Dear donors!
We are happy to inform you that some of our donation centres for plasma donations* are open for you again. We are all experiencing a very challenging time. The current situation around COVID-19 has again confirmed to us how important and irreplaceable your plasma donations are. Right now, human plasma is urgently needed to produce life-saving drugs for patients. There is a risk of a shortage of plasma-based drugs in a few months. For this reason we ask you to continue donating plasma. You are making a valuable contribution to the continuous care of patients.

We can understand that you are concerned about COVID-19. We have been working hard in the last few weeks on safety precautions, because your safety and health, as well as the safety and health of our employees, is our highest priority.

We appreciate your willingness to donate plasma and ask you to follow these guidelines:

  • Please make an APPOINTMENT for your donation and come punctually to the appointment
  • For your protection we recommend that you come with a new mask (if you have one). Otherwise you will receive a mask from us. Please wear it until you leave the centre
  • Carry your donor card (via app or ID card) with you
  • Keep a minimum distance of 1 meter in the centre
  • Please follow the instructions of our employees 
  • Please come to donate ALONE
  • If you have cough, fever or other cold symptoms, please stay at home
  • If you have been in contact with COVID-bearers (including suspected cases), please stay at home as well

We will be glad to answer all further questions and provide information on the increased protection measures directly at the centre. Please refer to the respective centre page for information on opening dates and hours.

 


We are looking for COVID-19 convalescents for plasma donation!

We are urgently looking for COVID-19 recovered persons for plasma donations! If you are recovered after your COVID-19 illness, please call one of our donation centres to make an appointment. You must be symptom-free for 28 days. Then please bring proof of a corona infection to your initial examination. 

It is known from previous virus epidemics that antibodies are formed in the blood of healthy people which can fight the infection. These antibodies cannot be produced artificially, but only from the plasma of recovered patients. The purpose of collecting this hyperimmune plasma is to obtain a hyperimmune globulin Anti-SARS-CoV2. The aim is to develop a hyperimmunoglobulin drug from it, which is able to cure patients affected by COVID-19. This drug is to be tested in clinical trials later this year.

Become a pioneer in the fight against the corona virus and support research into the treatment of COVID-19!

 

CoVIg-19 Plasma Alliance

Europlasma with its parent company LFB in France are part of the Plasma-Alliance CoVIg-19, which is working with world-leading plasma companies to develop an anti-SARS CoV-2 hyperimmune globulin drug with the potential to treat patients at risk of serious complications from COVID-19.

Europlasma, LFB, Biotest, BPL, Octapharma, CSL Behring and Takeda have formed the CoVIg-19 Plasma Alliance to jointly develop a plasma-based, brand-independent therapy rather than pursuing individual programs. 
The companies are plasma-derived therapies manufacturers with plasma collection centers that have extensive experience in the discovery, development and production of these vital, life-saving and life-sustaining treatments.

WE ARE IMPORTANT AND PRECIOUS TO EACH OTHER

We're glad to see you again.

Take care of yourself!
Your Europlasma Team 

*According to the ordinance of the COVID-19-Measures Act, Federal Law Gazette II No. 96/2020, plasma donation facilities fall under the exemption of § 2 no. 5 of the COVID-19-Measures Act (health and care services). The entry of potential donors into plasma donor facilities is covered by the exemption under section 2(1) of the Ordinance under the COVID-19-Measures Act, Federal Law Gazette II No 98/2020.

So why donate plasma?

Good reasons to become a donor

  • Because you can help thousands of people who depend on it for life. 
  • Because human blood plasma is used to produce life-saving drugs that cannot be produced genetically. 
  • Because plasma or plasma products are used daily in emergency medicine and surgery, and you, your family or your friends may need it one day.

It's so easy to save lives

This is how you profit
