Our medical specialists:

Donors and patients

Our blood collection personnel is active throughout the country, collecting blood samples from donors. Blood donor physicians and blood collection personnel work together at collection sites to support donors, ensuring a safe donation process and a non-disruptive experience.

All in all, a complex puzzle that requires your medical knowledge.
