Plasma-Derived Therapies

man in production facility

Used therapeutically for more than 100 years, plasma can be transformed into lifesaving and life-sustaining therapies for people with rare and complex chronic diseases – often patients with a lifelong condition and no other alternative treatment options. Global demand for plasma-derived therapies has greatly increased over the past 20 years and is continuing to grow due to more rare diseases being diagnosed, more patients being identified, higher standards of care and broader access to treatment.

To keep up with growing patient need, we aim to reimagine plasma and go beyond incremental improvements to find a wide range of innovative and sustainable solutions to better serve patients. Our expertise, capabilities and scale uniquely position us to transform plasma across our entire end-to-end operations and make a positive impact on people’s lives.
