- Thirteen plasma collection centres in Europe and

- Twenty in the US to ensure long-term plasma supply

Biotest received an operating permit for its fifth plasma collection centre in Hungary from the country's national public health authority OTH. The centre is in the southern Hungarian city of Szeged and belongs to Europe's most modern ones. It provides space for up to 25 donation chairs. Thus, the company is further expanding its plasma collection capacity and is adjusting the plasma supply to future growth.

The first plasma collection centre in Budapest was opened in 2009 by Plazmaszolgálat Kft., a 100% subsidiary of Biotest AG. "We are very pleased about the opening of another donor centre in Hungary. Our plasma collection organisation enables us to deliver highly ethical pharmaceutical products to the Hungarian market out of Hungarian plasma", stated Dr Martin Reinecke, Senior Vice President Plasma Alliances and Protein Supply of Biotest AG.

The collected plasma is processed only by Biotest AG in Dreieich. By expanding its plasma collection capacity, the company is able to supply the Hungarian market with products exclusively from Hungarian plasma. Regular audits ensure that the strict legal and internal quality requirements are met.
