ITACI was only possible because many people like you got together and decided to support the cause. Brick by brick, the dream became a reality with the anonymous support of solidary people, who understood the need and the importance of work. Every day, however, a new need arises, a new demand. The more children and adolescents are treated with excellence, other families look to us in the expectation of getting the same care.

And everyone has this right, so every collaboration is more than welcome, it is essential.
If you have a company, collaborate with our projects. If you are able, be a blood donor and register with the marrow donor bank.
With this you can help save many lives and this chain of good will multiply with your example. We count on you, learn how by clicking on the menu above.

We are a family owned and operated business.

Blood is made up of red blood cells, white blood cells, plasma and platelets. Platelets help control bleeding and part of them can be donated without causing any harm to the donor's health. The process that allows for the separation and specific collection of platelets is called apheresis.

We are a family owned and operated business.

The procedure for collecting platelets by apheresis consists of removing the donor's whole blood, separating the components by means of centrifugation, retaining part of the platelets and returning the other blood components to the donor. The whole process takes about 90 minutes.

We are a family owned and operated business.

Platelet donation benefits many patients, especially those undergoing treatment for leukemia and other types of cancer, those undergoing bone marrow transplantation, cardiac surgery, trauma victims, among others. It can be done every 72 hours, not exceeding 24 donations in 12 months. Platelet replacement by the body is rapid and occurs in about 48 hours.

Who can donate platelets?

We are a family owned and operated business.

The same requirements for blood donation are also applied for the donation of platelets by apheresis. However, it is necessary for the donor to be previously evaluated as to the conditions of venous access necessary to perform the procedure. The weight and height correlation of the donor should also be assessed. Only nulliparous women (who never got pregnant) can donate platelets by apheresis. In addition, the donor must not have used aspirin, ASA or non-hormonal anti-inflammatory drugs in the three days preceding the donation.

We are a family owned and operated business.
