A donation at Regensburg University Hospital differs from donations at other institutions. Certain components of the blood, e.g. blood platelets, white or red blood cells are gently separated from the whole blood whilst the blood is being taken. The rest of the components of the blood are returned to the blood donor straightaway. This so-called apheresis donation allows the donated components of the blood to be extracted in a targeted manner, further processed quickly and used promptly. At Regensburg University Hospital, blood can also be donated for research purposes.
From the registration to the end of the procedure, a blood donation at Regensburg University Hospital can take up to two hours. Please allow plenty of time!
