What tests are done after the donation?
Hemoclassification: tests to identify infectious diseases transmitted by blood, such as: HIV, Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HTLV I/II, Syphilis and Chagas disease are performed in order to ensure that the blood to be transfused to patients is safe.
The results will always be handled confidentially and will be notified exclusively to the donor, according to the current legislation.
Apheresis: is a donation modality that allows to separate blood components while being extracted. A machine consisting of a centrifuge system separates the platelets from the donor and returns the other components, basically, red blood cells. The process is performed through a single puncture in a vein.
The blood donated this way helps patients suffering from blood disorders, patients with diseases such as cancer or leukemia and transplant patients, whose bone marrow does not produce enough platelets.
