Biotest AG opens 10th plasma collection centre in Germany

  • 35 plasma collection centres in Europe to secure long term plasma supply

Dreieich, 20 April 2023. Biotest has officially opened the 10th plasma collection centre in Germany in Münster in Westphalia.

In future, plasma donors will be able to donate plasma six days a week, from Monday to Saturday, at the state-of-the-art centre in the ’Münster Arkaden’ in the city centre. There, friendly staff offer them a great service for the sustainable, paperless option of plasma donation. Plasma Service Europe GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Biotest AG, which was founded over twenty years ago to strengthen plasma collection in Germany, operates the new centre.

"Right in the centre of Münster, we are creating 20 new, highly qualified jobs. We are particularly pleased that the people of Münster are already showing a keen interest in plasma donation. We hope to soon welcome a large number of donors who will join us in ensuring the supply of life-saving medicines to patients worldwide." says Centre Director Sebastian Witte.

"Our great thanks go to our dedicated team, the construction companies involved, our architects and to the centre management of ’Münster Arkaden’ for implementing the project in these challenging times," emphasises Henrik Oehme, Managing Director of Plasma Service Europe GmbH.

Together with the mayor Angela Stähler, the management of Plasma Service Europe GmbH, Marina Hohenböken and Henrik Oehme opened the plasma donation centre in Münster.

Biotest is thus continuing the planned expansion of its own donation centres in Europe to contribute to more plasma collection after the plasma shortage in Germany and Europe has worsened in recent years due to corona pandemic.

The collected plasma is processed exclusively at Biotest AG in Dreieich in Germany. Audits conducted regularly in Germany ensure the high legal and internal quality requirements.
