Plasma is the yellow liquid portion of whole blood that can be easily replaced by the body. It is collected and processed into a wide variety of therapeutics, including blood clotting proteins to treat hemophilia.
BioLife, a subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., said it expects to create 50 new jobs and infuse nearly $2.5 million into the community in its first year of business.
