Not much more than a little sting!

What happens in a donation center?

The donation center first checks whether you are able to donate. After our phone call with you, we have already answered many questions and checked in advance whether there are any fundamental restrictions. There is a doctor on site who will talk everything over with you. Then your hemoglobin value is determined with a small drop of blood. Blood pressure, pulse and temperature are checked.

If everything fits, the process continues. A nurse on site provides access to your vein and then the procedure starts. Blood is extracted by a machine and immediately the  blood plasma is separated from all other components. We only need your plasma for the immunity donation. All other components will be led back to you on the spot.

For you, this procedure is much gentler than a usual blood donation. Therefore you can donate plasma much more often than you can donate blood.

After the donation you are advised to relax. This short break is necessary for your circulatory system to adjust to the changed amount of plasma. After twenty minutes you can leave.

Medical check-up

For your own safety a doctor on site will do a quick check-up and confirm your ability to donate.

Immunity donation

You sit down. A little sting. The helpers and the machine do the rest.


You shoud relax at least 20 min so that you can move safely in traffic again.

What do I have to consider before the immunity donation?

  • If you are sick and have previously arranged a donation appointment, please notify the donation center in good time so that a new appointment can be arranged.
  • Very fat food in the days before the immunity donation can render the donation unusable. You should therefore make sure that you eat healthy and balanced food beforehand.
  • Make sure you drink enough (at least 2 liters) the day before and the day of the donation. This makes it easier to extract blood.

This, too, is important for you

Frequently asked questions

Are immunity donation and plasma donation the same?

Yes and no.

Technically speaking, immunity donation is a plasma donation. However, the background is completely different. While calls for plasma donations focus on the idea of ​​producing sufficient plasma for various applications, there is always a clear intention concerning immunity donation: to obtain antibodies against a specific pathogen. In this case against Sars-CoV-2.

Plasma donation, immunity donation: Why two terms for the same process?

In Germany, donation services often find it difficult to find suitable donors. This is mainly due to the fact that many people do not know how many patients are dependent on blood and plasma donations. To meet demand, plasma is imported for different purposes. This is a problem right now.

Social coherence is the only thing that remains for us to get through the perhaps most difficult time of our generation. And that's what immunity donation is all about: your blood can save lives. And so people are now more than ever dependent on your solidarity and social coherence.

And that's why a plasma donation is not a plasma donation at the moment, but an immunity donation.

Your way of living social coherence!

How long takes a plasma donation or an immunity donation?

With a plasma donation and an immunity donation, the time required for the donation is between 30 and 45 minutes.

How often can I donate plasma?

In contrast to full-blood donations, a plasma donation can be carried out every five days.

Are the side effects of plasma donation and immunity donation different?

No. Most donors tolerate plasma donations very well. This also applies to immunity donations.

Nevertheless, as with a full-blood donation, there can of course be side effects. In some cases, circulatory problems can arise. This happens especially often if you haven't drunk enough before. Rarely, nausea, bruising at the puncture site or tingling in the arm can occur.

Please notify the staff at the donation center immediately if there are any undesirable side effects during or after the donation.
