  • 28 plasma collection centers in Europe to ensure long-term plasma supply

Dreieich, January 12, 2022. Biotest has received the license to operate its eighth plasma collection center in the Czech Republic from the country’s national public health authority SUKL. The center is located in the commercial center of the important central Bohemian town of Kolín, near the historic main square and the Gothic dome.

In the state-of-the-art center with 15 donor beds, donors can watch TV or use Wi-Fi during the donation. The center is open 6 days a week, 12 hours a day.

Biotest continues to expand its own donation stations in order to increase its plasma collection capacity and create 15 new jobs in the Czech Republic. Plasma from the additional center will be used to support the future growth of the new production facility in Dreieich.

“We are very happy to be able to contribute to the ever increasing demand for human blood plasma with the opening of the state-of-the-art donation center in Kolín. Our current and future plasma donors, who continue to donate in our centers during the pandemic of Covid-19 and thus making an important contribution to the production of valuable plasma-based medicines deserve our very special thanks. I also especially thank them “, underlines Dr Frank Velte, Vice-President of Plasma Service Europe GmbH.

The collected plasma is processed exclusively at Biotest AG in Dreieich. Regular audits carried out in the Czech Republic ensure that high legal and internal quality requirements are met.
