National Biotechnology Company Adds New Location in Louisiana

BATON ROUGE, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ImmunoTek Bio Centers opens its 80th and newest ImmunoTek Plasma location in Baton Rouge on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. As the world’s largest independent blood and plasma donation center operator, ImmunoTek invites the Baton Rouge community to visit the state-of-the-art facility to learn more about plasma donations and how they can positively impact others.

By removing the red and white blood cells from the blood, what remains is the golden liquid called plasma. Blood-plasma helps create medicines and plasma-based therapies that treat patients with various diseases and disorders, including shock and burn patients, bleeding disorders, transplant patients, those suffering from autoimmune diseases, and many others. Scientists cannot synthesize blood-plasma, so centers like the new ImmunoTek Plasma in Baton Rouge are vital to keeping up with the worldwide demand for plasma.

The United States provides 2/3 of the world’s plasma, and demand increases by 6% – 8% yearly. “We are excited to add Baton Rouge to the ImmunoTek family and to know that our donors are doing their part to help others. While we compensate donors for their time, the real gift is that donated plasma saves lives,” said Blair McKinney, Chief Operating Officer of ImmunoTek Bio Centers. “In addition to donor compensation, the new ImmunoTek donation center will create new jobs in Baton Rouge, and we anticipate making a $5 million economic impact yearly.”

To be eligible to donate plasma, in-house medical professionals conduct a medical screening, medical history review, and physical exam. Donating plasma is much like making a blood donation. A safe, sterile, automated process called plasmapheresis separates plasma from the blood and returns the remaining red blood cells to the donor. Donors can give plasma up to twice a week.

“ImmunoTek is proud to be an integral part of the Baton Rouge community where its employees and plasma donors live and work. Our team is excited about educating others about the importance of plasma donations. We look forward to positively impacting the local community and saving lives,” said Pamela Selvage, Center Manager of the new Baton Rouge center.

ImmunoTek Plasma’s new Baton Rouge location is at 6240 Florida Blvd and will operate Tuesday – Saturday. Walk-in donors are welcome for their first donation; subsequent donations are only by appointment. If you need more information or want to make an appointment, call the center at 225-208-0219 or visit
