Biotest AG opens eighth plasma collection centre in Czech Republic
Dreieich, 12 January 2022. Biotest has received the operating license for its eighth plasma collection centre in Czech Republic from the country’s national public health authority SUKL. The centre is located in the shopping mall in the important Central-Bohemian city Kolín near historical main square and gothic dome.
In the state-of-the-art centre with 15 donor beds, donors can watch TV or use Wi-Fi while donating. The centre is open 6 days a week for 12 hours a day.
Biotest is continuing on its planned path to expand its own donation stations in order to increase its plasma collection capacity and creates 15 new jobs in the Czech Republic. The plasma from the additional centre will be used to support to future growth at the new production facility in Dreieich.
“We are very pleased to be able to contribute to the continuously increasing demand for human blood plasma with the opening of the state-of-the-art donation centre in Kolín. Our current and future plasma donors, who continue to donate at our centres during the Covid-19 pandemic and thus make an important contribution to the production of valuable plasma-based medicines, deserve our very special thanks. Of course, smooth plasma donation in the donation facilities only works with dedicated employees, and I would like to extend my special thanks to them as well,” emphasises Dr Frank Velte, Vice President 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.
