New Plasma Donation Center To Open Saturday In Arlington

BioLife Plasma Services is opening a new donation center in Jacksonville’s Arlington neighborhood.

This is the fifth BioLife center to open in Florida, and it’s expected to create 60 new jobs.

Plasma is used in a variety of live-saving therapies for people with life-threatening diseases, like immunodeficiency disorders, hemophilia, and hereditary angioedema and demand is higher than usual right now.

Matthew Stueben, manager of the new BioLife Plasma Services center in Jacksonville, said that’s because plasma is critical in the quest to find a treatment for COVID-19.

“People that have had COVID and have recovered from it, they’ve built up antibodies,” Stueben explained. “We are now collecting from those individuals that have recovered and become healthy again. We’re using those antibodies to do some research.”

Stueben says the facility is hoping to collect plasma from as many as 200 donors in the first week. But, he says, that weekly number will quickly ramp up.

“With what we're already forecasting in Jacksonville, a good healthy center can process in the ballpark of 2,000 to 3,000 donations a week,” he said.

The new center will be located at 9312 Arlington Expy. and is scheduled to open on Saturday, Aug. 1. 

Everyone in the center will be following CDC guidelines to help stop the spread of coronavirus. That includes proper social distancing and requiring all staff and donors to wear masks.

To donate, you must be at least 18 years old and weigh 110 pounds or more.

BioLife Plasma Services is opening a new donation center in Greenfield, its 13th location in the state.

The plasma services company said its new center, located in a 30,000-square-foot former retail building at 7801 W. Layton Ave., is expected to create 40 jobs.

The facility also expects to generate between $2 million and $3 million annually of compensation to donors. It opens Saturday.

The company said it makes an average of $3 million to $6 million in an initial capital investment in its new facilities. BioLife operates more than 120 plasma collection facilities throughout the United States.

Its other Wisconsin locations include Appleton, Eau Claire, Fond du Lac, Green Bay, Janesville, Onalaska, Oshkosh, Sheboygan, Stevens Point and Wausau.

Plasma collected at BioLife centers is processed into a variety of therapies for people with rare diseases, such as immunodeficiency disorders, hemophilia and hereditary angioedema.

BioLife said its Greenfield center does not yet have the FDA regulatory license to release convalescent plasma donations but plans to collect convalescent plasma donations in the future.

BioLife center in Livonia expected to get green light at Monday council meeting

BioLife Plasma Services, a plasma donation company, will likely open its first metro Detroit location in Livonia.

BioLife Plasma Services looks like it's going open its first metro Detroit location in Livonia this year. The company has over 100 locations across the country and is known for working with donors to trade plasma for payment.

Biolife takes those blood donations, extracts the plasma and ships it to its to hubs, one on the east coast and one on the west. Simply, plasma takes nutrients and hormones through the body and can help remove waste from the body.

"BioLife is our client, but I've been through this with them hundreds of times if not a thousand times," said Jason Harder with Build to Suit. "It's a plasma donation center, so they actually take the plasma and ship it out... and turn it into different medications."

Serving the community:Livonia ordinance could allow council members to vote while on military duty

The issue is slated for for its final approval at the Monday, Feb. 10, council meeting after it was placed on the consent agenda. The consent agenda is made up of items deemed noncontroversial and is approved or denied in one vote. At the beginning of every meeting, council members can request to move items from the consent agenda and move them to regular business. 

"This is such a needed kind of thing," Councilwoman Laura Toy said of the company's plans. "They've proven themselves throughout many different cities in the state. It sounds great."

If approved, BioLife will be in the last vacant spot in the Wonderland Village shopping center on the corner of Plymouth and Middlebelt road in Livonia. BioLife hopes to open for business later this year. 

Council noted appreciation for the company's long process with the planning commission and willingness to compromise with the city. 

"Thanks for all the work you did with the planning commission one this," Council Vice President Scott Bahr said to Harder. "I looked through each of their meeting's minutes in detail and can see the evidence of you working with them and responding to their requests. I think what we have before us is an attractive building."

Plasma collection center opens in Regency Court

BioLife Plasma Services opened its fifth Florida donation center in Jacksonville Aug. 1 in Arlington.

BioLife is a plasma collection company. It is owned by Takeda, a “R&D driven biopharmaceutical leader,” according to its website. 

It operates 120 plasma collection facilities in the U.S.  

“Now, more than ever, donors in the Jacksonville area have a unique opportunity to make a difference in the community through plasma donation, and we are deeply committed to making treatment options available for patients who rely on plasma-derived medications,” said Matthew Stueben, manager of the BioLife Plasma Services Jacksonville center, in a news release.

“Plasma is a lifeline for thousands of people with rare, chronic and complex diseases,” he said.

The 9,500-square-foot center opened at 9312 Arlington Expressway in Regency Court. It expects to hire 60 people to staff the facility. 

Donors can make appointments online to visit the center.

The plasma collected at the center will be used for patients with immunodeficiency disorders, hemophilia and hereditary angioedema, a news release said. 

It is collected through a process called plasmapheresis, where plasma is separated from the blood and the blood is returned to the donor’s body.
