Biotest AG opens 14th plasma collection centre in the Czech Republic
Dreieich, 13 October 2022. Biotest has received the operating licence for the 14th plasmapheresis centre of Cara Plasma in the Czech Republic from the Czech health authority SUKL.
The new centre is located in the East Moravian university town of Zlin, which has a population of 75,000 and lies about 100 km east of Brno near the Slovakian border. It is located close to Tomas Bata University in a modern shopping centre. The state-of-the-art, fully air-conditioned donation hall has fast WiFi and Netflix on all WiFi TVs. Donors can donate plasma six days a week, from Monday to Saturday.
“With our centre, we are creating ten new, highly qualified jobs,” explains Roman Jakoubek, Managing Director of Cara Plasma in the Czech Republic.
Biotest is thus continuing the planned expansion of its own donor centres in Europe in order to significantly increase its plasma collection capacity.
“The shortage of plasma poses great challenges for the manufacturers of plasma protein products. With the new centre, we are making a contribution to the care of patients and we thank our dedicated team as well as the current and future donors for their tireless commitment,” emphasises Henrik Oehme, Managing Director of Plasma Service Europe GmbH.
The collected plasma is processed exclusively at Biotest AG in Dreieich. Audits conducted regularly in the Czech Republic ensure that the high legal and internal quality requirements are met.
