Blood donors

Whole Blood Donation

Blood donation does not hurt and it takes only five to ten minutes. However, the importance of this step is enormous. Only thanks to our donors we are able to produce approximately 20 thousand transfusion units for seriously ill patients every year.

Every single blood donation counts. In fact, approximately 450 millilitres of blood can help up to four different patients. Would you like to get involved, too? A donor can be any healthy adult person weighing at least 50 kilograms and not belonging among people with an increased risk of infectious diseases. 

Other conditions limiting blood donation are usually only temporary: e.g. trips outside the EU, vaccination or tattoo.

You can come every weekday:

New donors: 07:00 to 10:30
Regular donors: 07:00 to 11:00

If you have any questions, please write to us.
