State College BioLife Plasma Services Closed

State College BioLife Plasma Services has closed its doors permanently, according to a sign posted on the door. The business marked its last day open on Friday, May 31.

State College’s BioLife center was one of several across the United States. The center took plasma donations to help people with various diseases, including those with weak immune systems and hemophilia. In exchange for plasma, the center paid donors in the form of a prepaid Mastercard.

The State College BioLife location sat at 321 W. Beaver Ave. The land was the proposed location for a nine-story condominium hotel at the corner of Beaver Avenue and Atherton Street.

Hope is not entirely lost for broke Penn State students hoping to make a little money from their valuable plasma. CSL Plasma sits on North Atherton Street near Penn State’s campus, and anyone interested in making a trek to Pittsburgh can still get some quick cash for their troubles.
