Abstract

One of the tasks a Transfusion Medicine Service is to optimise the yield of platelets obtained from productive platelet apheresis, while considering the advantages for the patient and the donor, as well as the cost/efficiency ratio. With this aim, we compared some parameters related to multicomponent procedures of platelet and plasma apheresis, carried out using two different discontinuous flow cell separators. The results are based on data from a similar number of procedures carried out with a Trima Accel (Gambro) cell separator and a Haemonetics MCS 3p system. The analysis of these data enabled us to define the efficacy of the two separators and identify which performed better, in terms of duration of the procedures, yield of collected platelets and running costs.
