The Fratres is particularly attentive to the health of the donor, an essential prerequisite for the quality of the donation. The donation is not only giving to others, but also give yourself a healthy way of life.

That said, in relation to the various therapeutic needs, there are, according to the relevant regulations
,  different types of donation, which are targeted depending on which part of the blood is the most appropriate or desirable donate.
                                Whole blood donation
The whole blood lasts no more than 10 minutes for a volume of 450 ml more or less 10%. For this type of donation you must fast for at least eight hours and a time interval between a donation and the other, at least 3 months for men and for women in menopause, 6 months for women of childbearing age . Following a blood donation undergoes a processing, call centrifugation, which has the purpose of separating the individual blood components. In this way the plasma, the red blood cells and the white blood cells with the platelets flow into three separate bags, connected to each other, ready to be used just performed the examinations necessary to ensure safety.

With a single donation, therefore, it becomes possible to help three different people for which you need only a single blood component.

                      Plasma donation
It's possible, by the use of said equipments "cell separators", taken from the donor only a part of the blood, that of which it has more need (for example, only plasma), giving it back the other elements simultaneously. Currently, unfortunately, for the needs of only plasma Italy depends from abroad to about 70%, with an increase of expense and also risk. The plasma donor has the same physical characteristics of those who donate whole blood, with the difference that you can make the plasma gift for apheresis even after only 15 days, since the plasma is regenerated very quickly, and with hemoglobin rates below those required to donate whole blood. The plasmapheresis, however, requiring special equipment, you can make only enabled in some centers, and lasts about 30 minutes.
               Multiple donation of blood components
Modern technology also enables multiple donations through cell separators that collect one or more blood components from a single donor. The eritroplasmaferesi is the donation of red blood cells and plasma; the collection of red blood cells and platelets, however, is called eritropiastrinoaferesi; plasmapiastrinoaferesi is the donation of plasma and platelets.
