Donate plasma in the Donation Centre Vienna 9

Medical Director: Dr. Peter Perger

Medical Director Thrombocytapheresis: Univ. Prof. Dr. Paul Höcker

Our centre is open again!

Dear donors!
We are happy to inform you that our donation centre for plasma donations* is opened 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. You can arrange your appointments by phone, online or via Savelives App.

 


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 our donation centre 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

Plasma and thrombocyte donation in the Donation Centre Vienna 9

In our donation centre you can donate both plasma and platelets.

 

What is platelet donation?

Blood consists of a liquid part, the plasma, and the formed elements, the red and white blood cells and the thrombocytes (= blood platelets). The thrombocytes are important for blood clotting, without these cells a person could not survive, e.g. in wounds there would be no hemostasis.

Platelets are donated by voluntary donors in a similar way to plasma, there are the following differences: 

  • the time required is slightly higher, about 50-70 minutes (accordingly the expense allowance is higher), the blood circulating outside the body is less than in plasma donation and the type of machine used is different.
  • The bag with the removed platelet donation has a content of 300 ml. This bag is irradiated after the donation in order to kill any pathogens.  Because the platelets only have a shelf life of a few days, the donations are delivered to the hospitals immediately.

What are platelet concentrates used for?

  • It's an emergency medication. It is needed when there is a risk of bleeding due to the patient's low platelet count, which can be the case with various clinical pictures. For example, bleeding after accidents (together with blood preserves), in oncological patients undergoing cytostatic therapy or if platelet production is reduced in the case of bone marrow damage.
  • We check each of our plasma donors to see whether a platelet donation is also an option, provided that the initial platelet count is sufficiently high.
  • If you are interested in platelet donation, then simply talk to our doctor. To be able to donate thrombocytes, you must have donated plasma at least once.
