by BIZ Magazine

RUSTON, La.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 18, 2023– ImmunoTek Plasma is hosting a ribbon cutting and open house to give people in the Ruston area the chance to tour the state-of-the-art facility and learn more about the need for plasma donations.

The event will be held Monday, January 23, 2023 from 10 a.m. to noon at 105 W California Ave, Ruston.

Donated plasma is used to create many life-saving medicines and plasma-based treatments, and there is a tremendous demand for plasma worldwide. The need for plasma increases between 6% and 8% every year.
