Read it over to prepare for donating plasma.

The days before donating plasma:

- Drinking alcohol is prohibited 12 hours before donating plasma!
- Eat a protein-rich diet, avoid fatty foods and colorful foods (carrots, beetroot, etc.).
- Avoid stimulant drinks, those high in caffeine, and diuretic herbal teas.

On the day of the plasma donation:
- Don’t arrive starving, eat within 3 hours before!
- Abundant fluid intake IS VERY IMPORTANT (at least 2 or 3 liters of water).

After the plasma donation:
- Continue with an increased fluid intake.
- On the day of the plasma donation avoid drinking alcohol.
- Avoid smoking a half an hour after donating plasma.
- Avoid performing heavy physical work or strenuous training on the day of the plasma donation.
- Protect the spot of the pinprick.

In 365 days, you can come donate up to 45 occasions. Of course this is not obligatory.

However, if you have done 45 donations in a shorter period of time, you will unfortunately have to take a break until you have the opportunity to come again.

Of course, you’re entitled to that in any case having performed a successful pheresis.

The amount of the maximum allowance laid down by law is HUF 6,000. In addition to this amount, we will also give you a bonus of HUF 7,000 every even occasions and HUF 5,000 every odd occasions, to reward you for your willingness to help.

This way, each successful pheresis gets rewarded HUF 13,000 every even occasionsHUF 11,000 every odd occasions, paid right after your plasma donation! Collecting points and taking advantage of our periodic campaigns, you can get further supplements.

Yes, donating blood at least once a year is mandatory, you have to provide a certificate of it.

According to Government Decree 439/2015, regular plasma donors shall take part in a blood donation once a year. You have 180 days after your first plasma donation to take part in a blood donation.
Should you fail to comply with this, we cannot include you into our system for a new plasma donation. Bring with you the certificate on your blood donation he next time you come for a plasma donation.

Within 2 weeks after the blood donation, you may not donate plasma, and within 2 days after a plasma donation, you may not donate blood.

Yes, but only if we have spare capacity at that time. In any case, prior appointment is recommended.

We recommend booking appointments either online or on the phone. With a spare capacity in the center, you will get your pheresis. Typically, late afternoon hours are overloaded, so donors arriving unannounced in this time slot may have to be turned away. In this case we ask for your understanding.
Abundant fluid intake before donating plasma is crucial (primarily still water). This makes the process smoother, and generates less complaints due to dehydration.

When you arrive at the center, after a check-in at the specified time, your data will be reconciled, and your weight, temperature, blood pressure will be registered.
Then, you will fill in a survey (health assessment). That’s followed by a medical examination and a blood sampling. The purpose of the latter is to decide whether you are a suitable plasma donor (e.g. no disqualifying infections or anemia). 

If the eligibility assessment finds everything in order, the lab results shall be waited for. After a notification, you will be able to book an appointment.

Next time, you can start the pheresis itself, during which the pheresis machine centrifuges the blood sample and returns the red blood cells back to your body. Donating plasma is painless all along.
The duration of a plasma donation is about 40 to 50 minutes, varying from person to person. Plasma donation takes less time when preceded by an abundant fluid intake. (Drink at least 2 to 3 liters of fluid the days before donating plasma!)
