Biotest AG opens seventh plasma collection centre in Czech Republic
– 27 plasma collection centres in Europe to ensure long-term plasma supply
Dreieich, 25 November 2021. Biotest has received the operating license for its seventh plasma collection centre in Czech Republic from the country’s national public health authority SUKL. The centre is located in the historical part of the South-Bohemian city Strakonice in Art-Nouveau iconic house.
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 12 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 open Strakonice, another state-of-the-art plasma centre in the Czech Republic. A special thank you to all our current and future plasma donors who continue to donate at our centres during the Covid-19 pandemic, making an important contribution to the production of valuable plasma-based medicines. Of course, our thanks also go to our dedicated staff, without whom a continuous donation and supply of plasma would not be possible,” underlines Dr Frank Velte, Vice President 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.
