Octapharma Plasma is part of Octapharma AG, one of the world’s largest makers of plasma products. Based in Lachen, Switzerland, our parent company has been committed to patient care and medical innovation since 1983. We have biopharmaceutical experience in 70 countries and employ more than 5,500 people globally. We dedicate our life’s work to improving the health and lives of people worldwide by providing quality plasma products.
Our core mission is twofold – to ensure a positive, customer-focused experience for our valued donors and to provide a steady supply of quality plasma to create medicines that change lives.
Donors are our most important customers. We work hard to build these relationships every day by creating a positive donor experience. Our focus on safety, cleanliness and customer service brings dedicated plasma donors back to our donation centers week after week and year after year.
In supplying plasma, we strive to deliver products and services that consistently meet or exceed regulatory requirements and industry standards for product safety, quality, timely delivery and ease of doing business.
There are many different types of life-saving medicines that can be made using donated plasma.
For example, our parent company Octapharma AG makes a medicine called octagam® that's used to treat patients who have immune disorders. Another medicine, known as albunorm® (human albumin), is used to treat trauma patients with shock, burns or low protein levels. These are just a few of many plasma-based medicines that are possible thanks to our donors.
