Blood transfusion department
At the Faculty transfusion department, we donate blood and blood donors in the premises of the General University Hospital in Prague (Prague 2) and Zbraslav (Prague 5). We also regularly donate blood donors to many places in Prague and Central Bohemia. From the collected whole blood and blood components we produce in Zbraslav transfusion products not only for adult patients, but we also prepare special transfusion products, which find their use in pediatrics and in prenatal medical care.
We also process donor donations from other collection centers for transfusion products:
- Hematology and Transfusion Department (HTO) Jihlava Hospital
- HTO of Příbram Hospital
- HTO of Chrudim Hospital (Hospital of Pardubice Region, as)
In all donor donations we process, we also perform laboratory examinations in accordance with the current Human Blood Regulation: immunohematological examination (blood type, screening of irregular anti-erythrocyte antibodies), and the presence of infectious markers of HIV, HBV, HCV and syphilis. We are proud to have been testing the presence of HIV (1 and 2), HBV and HCV by the NAT (nucleic acid testing) method among the first in the Czech Republic to test infectious markers for blood donors, thereby significantly reducing the risk of transmission transfusion infection.
