Valley Plasma Donations Rebound After Slow 2020

With over 270 plasma collection centers in the U.S., Europe and China, CSL Plasma celebrated its newest center in Youngstown with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Tuesday.

“Plasma donations are down since COVID. We are starting to see the market come back up, but yes we need to continue to see growth over the next several years to make sure that we have enough plasma to manufacture new medications that are life saving for our patients,” says Michelle Meyer, divisional director of new center operations and expansion for CSL Plasma.

Meyer says once plasma is collected, it’s sent to a manufacturing site where it is made into medications which are distributed to hospitals & doctors all over the world.
