Plasma & Plasma-derived Products

Plasma is the clear, straw-colored liquid component of blood that remains after red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets and other cellular components are removed. It makes up about 55% of the body's total blood volume. Plasma is mostly water (over 90% by volume), and also contains dissolved proteins (6-8%), hormones, and carbon dioxide.

Plasma is the principal raw material for our biopharmaceutical products.
