Prepared Remarks:

Operator

Good afternoon, and welcome to ADMA Biologics' second quarter 2021 financial results and corporate update conference call on Wednesday, August 11, 2021. At this time all participants are in a listen-only mode. There will be question and answer session will follow. Please be advised that this call is being recorded at the Company's request and will be available on the Company's website approximately two hours following the end of the call.

At this time, I would like to introduce Skyler Bloom, Director, Investor Relations and Corporate Strategy at ADMA Biologics. Please go ahead.

Skyler Bloom -- Director, Investor Relations and Corporate Strategy

Welcome, everyone, and thank you for joining us this afternoon to discuss ADMA Biologics' financial results for the second quarter of 2021 and recent corporate updates. I'm joined today by Adam Grossman, President and Chief Executive Officer; and Brian Lenz, Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer.

During today's call, Adam will provide some introductory comments and provide an update on corporate progress, and then Brian will provide an overview of the Company's second quarter 2021 financial results. Finally, Adam will then provide some brief summary remarks before opening up the call for your questions.

Earlier today, we issued a press release detailing the second quarter 2021 financial results and summarize certain second quarter achievements and recent corporate updates. The release is available on our website at www.admabiologics.com.

With that, I would now like to turn the call over to Adam Grossman. Adam?

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Skyler. Good afternoon, everyone, and thank you for joining us on today's call. We hope those joining us today remain healthy and safe. ADMA continues to excel with the commercial launch and revenue ramp-up of its immunoglobulin and hyperimmune globulin product portfolio, as well as more broadly, advancing our company's strategic goals to create value for stockholders in the periods to come.

The underlying business trends for our commercial immune globulin business have never been stronger, and the operational execution by our organization across business segments cannot be overstated. The significant strides made during the first half of 2021 form the foundation for continued quarter-over-quarter revenue growth over the remainder of the year and thereafter. The totality of our achievements to date will enable ADMA to enter the next phase of its profit-oriented growth strategy from a position of strength.

The multi-year investment and remediation initiatives will be successfully winding down with the anticipated approval of the VanRx aseptic fill-finish machine over the coming months. And as a result, the Company is now on the precipice of realizing significant operating leverage on its pathway to corporate profitability.

During the second quarter of 2021, ADMA exceeded analysts' consensus top line revenue forecasts for the fourth consecutive quarter, generating record quarterly revenues of $17.8 million, representing a 129% growth rate compared to the second quarter of 2020. Additionally, the Company successfully narrowed gross and net losses year-over-year, a trend ADMA believes can continue in the coming quarters and further accelerate throughout 2022.

While ADMA's revenue and execution of its business plan have seen record and favorable results over the past several quarters, it is important to highlight that pandemic-related headwinds have impacted and continue to impact ADMA's commercial launch phase. Further, these records second quarter financial results do not yet reflect the added benefits expected in the recent FDA approval of our 4,400-liter expanded IVIG production scale, the additional plasma center developments, including opening a new plasma center, and implementing the new Persona donor collection software, nor includes the operating efficiencies expected from the anticipated VanRx approval over the coming months. We expect these approvals and enhancements to act as significant tailwinds for our business over the remainder of 2021 and beyond. Said another way, through unprecedented adversity, ADMA is just beginning to scratch the surface of the ultimate financial and value potential we believe this asset base and biologic drug manufacturing organization is now able to support.

We expect the supply chain milestones achieved thus far in 2021 will result in greater product yields and cost of goods sold improvements to support both near-term and ongoing financial results. And importantly, they will set the stage for durable value creation and continued narrowing of both gross and net losses over the longer term.

The recent achievement of FDA finding no Form 483 observations as part of the pre-approval inspection for the VanRx aseptic fill-finish machine should pave the way for an anticipated approval over the coming months. When approved, the licensure of the VanRx machine will cap a successful multi-year remediation process and supply chain investment initiative at the Boca Raton, Florida manufacturing facility, propelling ADMA into an elite group of US-based drug manufacturers with comprehensive in-house control of a majority of its critical manufacturing functions.

The COVID-19 pandemic has illuminated high-profile vulnerabilities in pharmaceutical supply chain among our large and mid-size peers. And it is in this context that we believe the successful remediation of our manufacturing operations, establishment of end-to-end supply chain control and ADMA's continued commitment to CGMP compliance uniquely differentiates our manufacturing footprint and is a testament to our industry-leading regulatory, quality and operational personnel.

In addition to recently revising the plant's annual peak production capacity up to 600,000 liters, as well as increasing peak revenue guidance to $300 million or more, ADMA will actively explore new contract manufacturing opportunities, following the anticipated approval of the VanRx machine in the second half of 2021, which could add additional revenue sources presently uncontemplated in the Company's current financial targets. We intend to provide updates to these financial objectives and communicate developments to the market as appropriate over the coming months.

Ensuring uninterrupted raw material plasma supply has been a strategic priority and investment focus for ADMA prior to and throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Industrywide headwinds pressuring plasma collection remain intact and are likely to sustain due to recent US government policy restrictions pertaining to the US-Mexico border and plasma collection facilities, among other variables. Accordingly, we believe the 2021 year to date milestones achieved by our ADMA BioCenters business unit will yield significant results and largely insulate the Company from broader market plasma collection and pricing fluctuations in the periods ahead.

Most notably, the first half of 2021 can be defined by three overarching achievements for ADMA BioCenters segment and ongoing raw material supply: one, the implementation of Haemonetics' Persona technology across our plasma collection center network, which is expected to enhance collection yield by approximately 8%; two, the extension of our company's principal third-party plasma supply contract through year-end 2022; and three, the continued on-track expansion of the BioCenters plasma collection center network, which now includes eight centers in various stages of approval and development. Collectively, the benefits of these three elements establish a solid foundation for ADMA to ensure continuity of product supply into an increasingly supply constrained immune globulin market.

ADMA's robust inventories of approximately $100 million at the end of the second quarter further validates the Company's commitment to generate quarter-over-quarter revenue growth throughout 2021 and beyond, as well as meet the production needs to achieve longer-term revenue guidance of $300 million or more. All told, ADMA remains on track to have 10 or more FDA-approved plasma collection facilities in operation by 2024.

ADMA is hitting its stride at a moment in time when immune globulin and continuity of plasma supply has arguably never been more critical or threatened. Less than two years into the commercial launch of our company's immune globulin and hyperimmune globulin products portfolio, ADMA has established a strong foundation to continue to penetrate the rapidly growing us immune globulin market, which reached approximately $9.5 billion in total revenues in 2020, up approximately 19% year-over-year.

With ADMA's commercial portfolio now annualizing more than $71 million in top line sales and with losses continuing to narrow, we anticipate the next several quarters of forward-looking financial results will be reflective of what we believe is a highly undervalued asset base well on its way to generating peak revenues of $300 million or more with significant profitability beginning no later than the first quarter of 2024. Additionally, as previously mentioned, we believe there may be opportunities to formally revisit the Company's current top line revenue and profitability guidance as the year progresses and anticipated regulatory events unfold. The evaluation of these targets is ongoing, and we look forward to communicating more in the periods ahead.

We would like to thank the ADMA Biologics team for keeping its focus and continuing to execute. Producing biologics is a very complex process with many constituents throughout the supply chain. And I commend you all for meeting our top goal, delivering for the patients who are counting on us. Additionally, we are sincerely grateful to our stockholders for their continued support of our efforts to provide lifesaving products to patients in need.

With that said, I'd now like to turn the call over to Brian for a review of the second quarter 2021 financials.

Brian Lenz -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Thank you, Adam. Since we issued a press release earlier today outlining our second quarter 2021 financial results, I'll just review some of the highlights. For the second quarter of 2021, total revenues were $17.8 million, compared to $7.8 million for the second quarter of 2020. This represents an increase of $10 million, or approximately 129%. The revenue growth for the second quarter of 2021 compared to the second quarter of 2020 was favorably impacted by the continued commercial ramp-up of our IVIG product portfolio and expanding customer base at both our BioCenters plasma collection segment as well as in our BioManufacturing segment.

Additionally, ADMA grew its total asset base to a quarter-end balance of approximately $232.8 million, which includes approximately $100 million in inventory. ADMA expects the robust inventories, which are recorded at the Company's cost, to support quarter-over-quarter revenue growth throughout 2021 and beyond, as well as meet the production needs to achieve longer-term revenue guidance of $300 million or more. This inventory balance consists of raw materials, including source plasma and other materials expected to be used in the production, as well as work in process and finished goods inventories comprised of our commercial IVIG products and intermediate fractions.

In the periods ahead, ADMA anticipates continuing to purchase raw materials, while also growing its internal plasma collection center network, building work in process inventories, as well as finished goods inventories. Given the ongoing industry plasma collection constraints, as Adam previously characterized, we intend to retain a portion of our growing inventories as safety stock, which we believe will help solidify our emerging position as a reliable supplier to our customers, distribution partners and prescribers over the coming quarters.

Our consolidated net loss for the second quarter of 2021 was approximately $18.9 million or $0.15 loss per basic and diluted share, compared to a consolidated net loss of approximately $20.2 million or a $0.23 loss per basic and diluted share for the second quarter of 2020. The decrease in year-over-year net loss was primarily attributable to increased revenues and improved gross margins. With this being the fourth consecutive quarter of revenue growth, we anticipate this trend to continue in the periods ahead.

With that, I will now turn the call back over to Adam for closing remarks.

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Brian. Within two years following FDA approval of ASCENIV and BIVIGAM, ADMA has successfully established end-to-end control of its manufacturing chain, and while doing so, has also built a high caliber commercial organization well positioned to compete in the rapidly growing US immune globulin market. This market is expected to reach approximately $17.2 billion in annual revenues by 2027.

ADMA's 2021 year-to-date accomplishments across business segments will enable the Company to accelerate robust financial trends in the period ahead and enter the next phase of what we believe will be a multi-decade profit-oriented lifecycle opportunity. In the short term, we now anticipate exiting 2021 with an annualized revenue run rate of approximately $100 million or more.

Additionally, and as communicated in prior calls, we as a management team and Board of Directors have invested significant capital into the Company. And we are acutely aware of the valuation disconnect between ADMA's appreciating intrinsic value and the Company's current market cap. We are aligned with you, our stockholders. As such, we are considering alternative business opportunities to maximize stockholder value, including, for example, the acquisition or sale of specific assets or businesses, collaboration and/or license agreements, or other co-development agreements or arrangements. We look forward to a strong remainder of 2021 and the bright future for ADMA Biologics.

In closing, I'd like to thank you, our stockholders, for your continued support, as your investment in ADMA helps to advance our mission to save lives, make good efficacious, safe products that help our friends, family and neighbors. Please donate plasma and help save lives.

And with that, I'd now like to open up the call for your questions.

Questions and Answers:

Operator

[Operator Instructions] And our first question comes from Anthony Petrone from Jefferies. Your line is now open.

Anthony Petrone -- Jefferies -- Analyst

Thanks. Good afternoon, everyone. Congratulations on another strong 2Q here.

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

Thank you, Anthony.

Anthony Petrone -- Jefferies -- Analyst

I'm going to start with the $100 million target exiting this year. Just wondering what the mix of BIVIGAM, Nabi and ASCENIV is in there. So that would be the first question. And then, on the disclosure here on the CDMO arrangements, when we think about the plant in Boca eventually getting to an operational capacity of 600,000 liters, what should we be thinking about in terms of allocation to future potential CDMO agreements? And I'll have a couple of follow-ups.

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

Sure. Thanks Anthony. Thanks for your kind words. Hope you're staying safe up there in New York. So yeah, we're -- it's a great time to be in the immune globulin business. I think that you stay on top of current events with the collection segment as well as how that flows through to finished goods. And a number of our competitors, large, mid-size and the smaller players, they're not taking on new customers right now. They're talking about having tightness of supply anticipated later this year, early next year. We're hearing that there are substantial countries in Europe, in the EU that are truly undersupplied at the present time. And I'm not sure how much longer the competitors are able to take product from one country and bring it into the US. So the outlook for our revenue growth really looks very, very strong. Again, we've got more product in the supply chain and coming online than we've never had before.

And regarding your question about the $100 million potential run rate that we would be achieving later this year, as we've previously said to you and others and on these calls, our current mix is pretty much 90-10, 80-20 right now, BIVIGAM being the majority of the product that we are producing and distributing and selling out of this plant. We are seeing growth in our hyperimmune product segment, utilization of Nabi, and the press release earlier this week regarding now having the 1 ml size back on the market certainly is welcome to our customers. So we're very, very excited there. And we hope to gain some more market share back since we haven't had the 1 ml product on the market for a while.

And ASCENIV is growing at a steady pace, both in the outpatient and inpatient segment. We feel very, very confident that the J-code has really helped to bolster and solidify reimbursement in multiple treatment settings. And we're just very proud of the work that we're doing and the acceptance of our products. Again, we've got more product available, and we are taking new customers. We are adding people to our distribution network. We are selling through distributors and pulling it through. And we are also adding new specialty pharmacies, hospitals, home care organizations all the time. So really, things are going very well for us from a commercial standpoint.

I think your next question was around capacity. Again, it's going to take us a little while to get up to the 600,000 liter capacity. What we do say is that within three, four years or so, we should be able to generate revenues of, we say, $250 million or more in 2024, and then potentially generating more thereafter. It's probably going to take us 2024, 2025 to get to really that 600,000 liter capacity, Anthony. We're currently expanding our ADMA BioCenters business segment. I'm sure you saw that press release yesterday after market. And we're really very proud of the work that's being accomplished there. And you take our vertically integrated plasma collection, coupled with our third-party supply agreements and some new contracts that are going to come online later this year, next year, and we reiterate all previously stated financial and strategic objectives with respect to quarter-over-quarter revenue growth. And we anticipate that's going to continue all the way through profitability forecasted for Q1 2024. Hopefully that answered your question.

Brian Lenz -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Sure. And I could add a little bit more color to the revenue mix, Anthony. As we saw in this quarter actually, compared to the first quarter of '21, we had a negative 11% gross margin. Actually, that number has been cut in half now to a negative 6% gross margin. And that's really attributable to selling more of our hyperimmune globulin products. So, that product mix is already starting to see a shift. The hyperimmune globulins, as we mentioned previously, have a 70% to 80% gross margin. And our standard IVIG product globulins have a gross margin of 20% to 30%. So we've already started seeing that product mix really start in the second quarter. We think that that's going to continue that trend. We've also in this quarter -- as a result of the increased revenues, we've seen more customers that have been added. We've expanded our customer base. And again, we're selling more of our hyperimmune products into the market and being well received.

Anthony Petrone -- Jefferies -- Analyst

That's helpful. And a couple of follow-ups here would be, one, just to reiterate on a plasma collection side, you're eight -- in the process of getting to the eight centers. I just want to confirm that exiting 2022, the target is still for 10 operational centers. So that would be the first question. And then secondly, just as you speak to inventories, and you mentioned safety stock, maybe what should we be thinking of -- as we look at the inventory going forward, what percent of your balances will be represented by safety stock? Thanks again, and congrats again on the quarter.

Brian Lenz -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Sure, OK. Also, I can take those questions. With regards to the centers, we currently do have eight centers in various stages of development. Two are FDA approved, five centers are collecting plasma at present. By the end of 2022, we want to have 10 centers or more under our corporate umbrella. By 2024, we'd like to have all those 10 centers or more FDA approved, and really being in a place will be self-sufficient to bring in, from a supply chain standpoint, the majority, if not all, of our raw materials, 400,000 to maybe 600,000 liters of revenue -- liters of plasma coming in from our plasma centers.

Now, as you look at our inventories, ending the second quarter of 2021, we have $100 million in inventory. And half of that inventory -- and this is a testament to show how much production we've really been able to ramp up here in Boca. Our work in process is close to $50 million. And that's a real -- I think that's a testament to show how much the production has continued to increase here. We just got the 4,400 approval process approved by the FDA just in April. So we think that that WIP number is going to continue to grow, which is a good sign because as that WIP number, work in process number, moves through the manufacturing and filling phase of our 7 to 12 month production lifecycle, a lot of that product is then going to go into the final phase, the finished good phase.

So to answer your question, roughly, how much finished goods would we estimate to have on a quarterly basis? If we're -- since we've got it to $250 million, Anthony, in 2024, and we say roughly a blended margin of about 50%, on a quarterly basis, you're looking at somewhere between $60 million and $70 million a quarter, 50% gross margin, I think it's somewhere around $30 million to $40 million, and it's at our cost, of finished goods. So we're certainly well on our way having a balance sheet of $100 million in inventory at our cost, thinking again about 50% gross margin on that number. We're certainly setting ourselves up for a very strong foundation that we've created to beat or achieve quarter-over-quarter, year-over-year revenue growth, again, which is a testament to these recently published financials for our second quarter.

Anthony Petrone -- Jefferies -- Analyst

Thanks again.

Brian Lenz -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Thank you.

Operator

Thank you. And our next question comes from Elliot Wilbur from Raymond James. Your line is now open.

Elliot Wilbur -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Thanks. Good afternoon. First question for Brian, maybe just following up on some of your commentary around COGS and inventory. Specifically thinking about the COGS line, always a lot of questions when you have negative margins. But just trying to think about how this line progresses or changes going forward as your top line increases. I guess if I look at second quarter, revenue went up sequentially around $1.8 million, COGS went up around $1 million. Is that how we're going to see things progress going forward? Basically, you're going to start to see 40%, 50% incremental margin per incremental revenue dollar on top of sort of the average COGS run rate we've seen in the last quarter. Just trying to figure out how exactly that number is going to trend as sales continue to accelerate.

Brian Lenz -- Executive Vice President, Chief Financial Officer

Sure, thanks for the question, Elliott. So, a couple things with COGS. When we achieve the $250 million run rate from a revenue standpoint in 2024, we'll essentially be at very close to full capacity production, 90%, 100% capacity production, producing that much product to get to that level. We're certainly not there yet. So we currently do have some unabsorbed manufacturing overhead costs that are still in the cost of product revenue line. But as we continue to scale up operations, most importantly, as I mentioned about the 4,400 scale-up, as we continue to produce more BIVIGAM at the 4,400 liter, more products, more margins are going to be improved to essentially generate those additional revenues. So when you think about the -- really the main variable cost, going from a 2,200 liter to a 4,400 liter batch is just the raw material, not a very small modest amount of additional direct labor, but the overhead is essentially the same.

So revenues, to put it simplistically, will be outpacing the overall COGS number in the not too distant future, number one, because of the 4,400 liter batches we're producing now that we're going to be releasing next year. Number two, the second half of this year, we have the four [Phonetic] 4,400 liter batches, the conformance batches that we manufactured previously once we got the FDA approval just this past April a couple months ago, we're hoping to be selling -- we hope to expect to be selling those batches in the second half of this year. So you will see margins continue to improve there. And again, just thinking about the lifecycle timeframe of 4,400 liter production, it will take 7 to 12 months. So we're going to start realizing some of those synergies, cost efficiencies, margin improvement as we've seen this quarter from the previous quarter. We expect those trends to continue to second half of this year and certainly accelerating into the first half of 2022.

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

I also think, Elliott, if I can just add something, something else to take note of is that with any drug manufacturing, and I think in the comments, Brian and I have both said that producing biologics is certainly complicated, complex and not the easiest thing in the world. But there's always the possibility of some onetime, one-off charges and expenses, and they're unpredictable. And these are just things that -- it's hard for us to guide you as an analyst and others, but I think that as we continue to produce more, the effects of maybe some of these discrepancies and one-off occurrences could be less meaningful. Additionally, I think with the pandemic and certain issues regarding supply chain, raw material, disposables, consumables, testing reagents, etc., other supplies, there are some costs, shipping charges, one-time expenses.

Honestly, I'm sure I don't have to really say these types of things, but you need to get a truck delivered with ethanol, but there's no driver, but you may have to offer the driver an extra $5,000 to get in the truck to come down here to drive it to you. There are there are some very interesting things that are going on across industries with the supply chain that I -- they're just unpredictable right now. But to Brian's point, we expect revenues to continue to increase. The product mix is certainly improving. The acceptance of our hyperimmunes is growing. And I think that as we've reported previously, the margins on our hyperimmune products are typically, call it, 60% to 80% gross margin product. The more of those that we can sell, the better our overall COGS are going to be as an operating business unit in the BioManufacturing segment.

Elliot Wilbur -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Thanks. Adam, if I can ask you a question as well, historically, Nabi has been a relatively steady product. But can you speak to any factors that might be driving marginally increased demand there? And a similar question on ASCENIV. What may be driving the incremental volume there? Is it just overall demand for IVIG and then there's capacity constraints? Or is it more specifically tied to the emergence or the increase in RSV infections that we've been hearing about in the media?

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

Sure. With respect to Nabi, Nabi ebbs and flows across the market. Again, we're not -- I'm not hearing about any of our competitors having supply chain issues, but you never know what's occurring there. We've got a pretty competitive price in the marketplace. I know that some of our competitors across our immunoglobulin portfolio and their immunoglobulin portfolios, they've taken some price increases. We feel very good about our pricing across products, and we've recently announced a price increase that's going to take effect, I think, in the next week or so on Nabi. And we've got a competitive price. We've got a good product. As you know, it's got a brand name out there.

There are some other factors. I think people are still hunkering down in cohabitation with other people with hepatitis certainly is a labeled indicated use for the drug. And, quite frankly, I think, awareness, maybe some of the marketing programs and some of the campaigns that we spent money on and invested on, I like to think that they're working. With respect to ASCENIV, as you know, what differentiates ASCENIV from BIVIGAM and from other immune globulins on the market is our patented method of how we identify and screen plasma donors, and we collect from donors who are tested to have high levels of neutralizing antibodies to respiratory syncytial virus. And our patent states that these donors also seem to have high antibody levels to a panel of other respiratory viral pathogens. And, I cannot explain it. It defies everything that I've ever learned throughout my 25-year career in the RSV, immune globulin space, but global awareness of RSV is heightened. The CDC put out some guidelines a couple of months ago, at least for the southeast region of the United States, that RSV is on high alert. And we're seeing an increased rate of RSV infections in advance of what's typically the normal and customary RSV season.

So, the drug also -- in an outpatient setting, look, when you look at -- again, when you visit the ASCENIV website, we talk about patients that are suffering from chronic and persistent bacterial, viral infections. They may be on concurrent antibiotic therapy and receiving other drugs there. I think our commercial team and the investments that we've made into the commercial launch, both through the face-to-face approach, the virtual congresses, the website, the media campaigns, everything that we've done, we've made a significant investment into the launch of this product. Again, getting the J-code and solidifying reimbursement I think helps. But I think that we're starting to see a good return on our investments that we've made.

Something that I talked about, and I mentioned it in my prepared remarks today, is we do a lot of things here at ADMA. And one of the things that we do is we've built an entire commercial organization to support our three commercial products. And we've got a stellar sales force, a stellar national accounts team. We've got some of the leading market access and reimbursement folks. And I'm proud of where these people have cut their teeth and come from, and now they're bringing their expertise to ADMA Biologics. They're able to flourish here. And I think that -- I take my hat off to this team. It hasn't been easy. It's been a challenge during COVID and the pandemic to engage with clinicians. And let's just say, when the country opened up this past summer -- late spring, early summer, when things were opening up, our team pushed me to resume traveling. They were some of the first to get vaccinated, and they've been pounding the pavement, and I'm seeing the expense reports coming through. So we're starting to see some hospital closures. We're starting to see hospital beds fill up. And we're hearing, reading the articles that I'm sure you are as well. But I think it's all a mix of the chaos that is stemming from the pandemic. Immune globulin is what you use to prevent or treat certain infectious diseases in immune-compromised people. Remember, immune-compromised patients typically don't respond well to vaccines, so, be it an influenza vaccine, an RSV vaccine, we know that there are trials that are that are ongoing, the COVID vaccine and all the other normal and customary vaccines, that's the purpose of immune globulin is to provide passive immunity to infectious pathogens.

So I think it's all coming together. And I say it, but I really do mean it. It's not a bad time to be in the immune globulin business. We continue to receive inbound phone calls, and our sales force follows up with them. And we're taking on new customers. And we're really proud of it. And the supply chain cycle, there's improvements anticipated with the upcoming potential approval of the VanRx machine and us taking control in-house. But you're never going to really speed it up faster than that seven, eight, nine, 10 month time frame. That's how long it takes to make these drugs. And you got to think about it like gestating a baby. Sometimes they come a little quicker, sometimes they take a little longer, but most of the time, you're looking at nine months. You can't [Phonetic] accelerate this process.

So we appreciate our shareholders' patience as we continue to grow and build our manufacturing throughput and as we secure our plasma supply. But at the end of the day, we really want people to feel confident that we've got an excellent commercial team leading the charge out there. They're putting the product into the channel and they're pulling it through. The utilization is there. The reimbursement is there. And all of this is coming together. And I think with our revised guidance that we put out this quarter, where we anticipate the potential to exit this year with $100 million revenue run rate, and that's only going to grow as we proceed through 2022. Brian and I can't be more bullish on the amount of finished goods that we're going to be able to provide to the market. And we want the patient community and the patient advocacy community to know that if you have a problem obtaining IG from your standard supplier, we are here and we've got grams available.

Elliot Wilbur -- Raymond James -- Analyst

Thanks. And one last question, if I may. Can you just talk a little bit about the 100 ml vial offering, how important that is to expanding the franchise? I know it's available in limited quantities currently. But when do you have -- when are you kind of at full run rate with respect to that presentation? Just curious if that just allows you to expand business with existing customers. Does it open new doors just because that's sort of the preferred offering in the market? Just strategically, what does that mean in terms of growing the franchise going forward?

Adam S. Grossman -- Founder, Director, President and Chief Executive Officer

It's -- first of all, it's something all of our competitors have. We have been commercial with a 5 gram, 50 ml vial size. When I was a younger man and I was selling IVIG, when you only had 5 gram vials to sell, it was a lot harder than having 10s or 20s. If you think about it, the product is dosed -- typically, immune globulin is dosed at 500 milligrams per kg of body weight. So you take a 70 kilogram adult, you're talking roughly 30 grams to 40 grams is a dose. So when a hospital pharmacist or when a home care pharmacist is preparing the immune globulin for infusion, typically, you will either pull it into a type of infusion transfer bag, or you're going to hang each individual vial. Would you rather hang three vials or pull three vials or would you rather pull seven vials? It's a factor of labor costs. And when you're looking at our customer -- and our customer really are the home care companies and the hospitals that are the place where patients are infusing the products -- they look at this like they're a manufacturing organization also, and their time is worth money and they look at these things.

So, having the 100 ml vial certainly helps us to be more competitive, especially in the higher-volume, higher-throughput, specialty pharmacies, home care organizations and hospitals where time is extremely valuable. I think that it also demonstrates our commitment to improving product quality and the diversity of our available offerings. These are all things a commercial manufacturing business does. So I think when you factor all this together, we don't have plans in the short term for additional vial sizes. We plan to offer for BIVIGAM both the 5 and 10, 50 ml and 100 ml vial. The 100 ml vial is available now. So those are available for sale. And as Brian mentioned, the vials that we currently have were produced in those four conformance batches that were the basis for the prior approval supplement submission for the approval from FDA.

So Elliot, coming from a place where we -- you took over this plant with a warning letter. It was not in commercial production at that point in time. You fast forward, our four year anniversary, if you will, was in the second quarter, June 6, was our fourth anniversary. And to get to a place where we've got a full finish line that we just completed an FDA pre-approval inspection, with zero 43 observations. We've got new container closure system out there. That means new vial label packaging stopper cap, multiple vial sizes across our product portfolio, three products approved. The plasma center expansion and build out is exceeding our expectations. We've accomplished a lot of things in four years. And I think that our customers see it. And I know it's a long answer to your question about the 100 ml size, but I think it all really makes a difference, and it puts ADMA on the same playing field as the CSLs, Takedas, Grifols, BPLs and Kedrions. I don't think that there is a hospital pharmacy or a homecare company out there that isn't aware that ADMA Biologics is a player and has grams available, should they need them, with BIVIGAM, ASCENIV and Nabi-HB.
