A novel, automated method of temperature cycling to produce cryoprecipitate.

Current AABB standards call for a minimum of 80 units (U) of factor VIII and 150 mg of fibrinogen per bag of cryoprecipitate. However, individual cryoprecipitates can vary greatly in content, with as many as 20 different factors known to affect the yield. STUDY DESIGN… (More)
