KANKAKEE COUNTY, Ill. – CSL Plasma has opened a new center. 

The facility, located at 725 N. Kinzie Avenue, Bldg 201, in Bradley, is open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays through Fridays and 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays. The new center is in addition to the five existing CSL Behring plasma centers in Illinois.

The new center is expected to collect up to 1,500 donations of plasma per week, which will be used to treat various medical conditions, including hemophilia and immune deficiencies. Researchers at the center hope to recruit candidates for paid plasma donations, with individuals being able to donate plasma up to twice a week.

CSL Behring operates 320 donor sites worldwide, with 275 located in the United States. The Kankakee County plant, where the new donation site will be located, already produces a long list of lifesaving medicines, including vaccines to prevent influenza and therapies for iron deficiency, dialysis, and nephrology.

Plasma donations are crucial, especially in treating medical conditions that require lifesaving treatments. To be eligible for plasma donations, donors must be at least 18 years of age, weigh at least 110 pounds, and pass a medical examination. Plasma regenerates quickly, and with proper hydration, a donor’s blood volume returns to normal within 48 hours.
