Plasma collected at CSL Plasma facilities is used by CSL Behring for the purpose of manufacturing and delivering its life-saving therapies to people in more than 100 countries.

It All Began With a Promise

In the century since CSL, our parent company, was formed, we have grown into a global biotechnology leader, driven by our promise to save and improve lives. This visual narrative symbolizes the passion, drive, and spirit of our 30,000+ employees to develop and deliver life-saving therapies for our patients.

Processing Your Plasma

Our US Plasma Logistics Centers (PLCs) are state-of-the-art facilities for receiving, storing, and shipping plasma that’s donated at our collection centers.

The inventory is controlled by sophisticated logistics software that ties into our donor management computer system. This allows for “vein to vial” control - we trace each plasma unit from donation, to laboratory test results, logistics, and fractionation, to the finished product: a life-saving plasma-derived medicine.

Putting Your Plasma to the Test

Our CSL Plasma testing laboratories test millions of plasma samples each year, ensuring both safety and quality.

They employ a combination of licensed technical, non-technical and support personnel. Both serological and Nucleic Acid Testing (NAT) are conducted to identify viruses, even those present before a donor shows any symptoms or develops antibodies. NAT testing is a very sensitive screening that can detect viruses earlier than serological testing.

Striving for Innovation

We made it our business goal to keep improving the donor and employee experience through innovation and remain the plasma donation center of choice.

We value our donors’ time and experience, which is why we have updated our collection devices so you can donate faster, help create more life-saving medicines, and experience a more comfortable donation.*
