Pura - Egypt


"As part of the newly built network of plasma donation centers, we delivered a total of 262 Pura chairs to Egypt. Their versatility, above-standard hygienic parameters and maximum emphasis on comfort enable the collection of plasma in top conditions," said Jitka Stranska, Managing Director LINET MEA. "This is a unique, prestigious order in terms of volume since 2018, when we launched the Pura chairs on the market," she added.

The Egypt´s health minister Hala Zayed tested the Pura chairs and donated plasma in Ehab Serag El-Din Centre for blood transfusion services in Giza’s Al-Agouza district, becoming the first permanent plasma donor. At the same time, she announced the inauguration of plasma collection services in six centres across five Egyptian governorates, including three in Greater Cairo.

Only 29% of countries obtain their hemoderivatives through nationally collected plasma. The Egypt´s Ministry of Health and Population declared that 20 centers for plasma collection will be established by the end of 2023 as well as a strategic central storage within the president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi’s initiative to achieve self-sufficiency in plasma derivatives.
