Biotest AG opens 12th plasma collection centre in the Czech Republic
The centre is located in Pelhřimov in south-eastern Bohemia. In the state-of-the-art centre with 8 donor beds, plasma donors can donate plasma six days a week, Monday to Saturday.
"Thanks to this new plasma centre, ten new qualified jobs will be created in Pelhřimov," emphasises Roman Jakoubek, Managing Director of Cara Plasma 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 opening of the centre is part of our strategy to increase the self-supply share of plasma at Biotest AG and to ensure the supply of patients worldwide," emphasises Henrik Oehme, 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 and safety requirements are met.
