The most recent donation location for Octapharma Plasma Inc., a company that collects plasma “for the development of life-saving pharmaceutical therapies,” is located at the Sheridan Center retail mall in Amherst (3386 Sheridan Drive). Octapharma Plasma has been operating donation sites in 36 states since its founding.
According to the corporation, plasma is the liquid portion of blood that travels throughout the body, containing proteins, clotting factors, and antibodies. Plasma has a variety of medical applications, including treating wounds, autoimmune disorders, hemophilia, and cancer. Products from Octapharma are accessible in 118 nations and treat hundreds of thousands of patients annually. Giving donors a compensation for their time not only shows how valuable their time is but it also serves as a significant incentive for both new and returning donors to give.
According to Alice Stewart, COO of Octapharma Plasma, “We’re looking forward to bringing our level of service to New York, and Greater Buffalo is a great place to start as we hope to grow our presence with additional future centers in the years to come.” “Our donors actively contribute to the resolution of the current plasma shortage and help thousands of patients who depend on plasma therapies for their health.”
Each donation center for Octapharma Plasma is “focused on impacting the community it serves.” About fifty new positions will be created in the Amherst Center. To raise awareness of the value of plasma donations, the facility will collaborate with neighborhood companies and civic associations. The Amherst facility of Octapharma Plasma now stands in the company’s fleet of more than 160 centers spread across 36 states. Octapharma Plasma is trusted by more than 400,000 donors annually to deliver a convenient and comfortable donor experience.
