Human plasma is processed and used in dozens of different lifesaving plasma protein therapies. People who use these therapies manufactured from human plasma rely on the generous donations made by committed individuals. To further improve the quality and safety of source plasma, PPTA developed the International Quality Plasma Program (IQPP). 

IQPP provides independent, third-party evaluation and recognition of a center's adherence to global industry standards for source plasma.
