- 14 plasma collection centres in Europe and

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

Biotest received an operating permit for its sixth plasma collection centre in Hungary from the country's national public health authority OTH. The centre is in the western Hungarian city of Székesfehérvár and belongs to Europe's most modern ones. It provides space for up to 28 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. Regular audits in Hungary ensure that the strict legal and internal quality requirements are met.
