Bacterial screening of platelet concentrates on day 2 and 3 with flow cytometry: the optimal sampling time point?

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is growing concern on the residual risk of bacterial contamination of platelet concentrates in Germany, despite the reduction of the shelf-life of these concentrates and the introduction of bacterial screening. In this study, the applicability of the BactiFlow flow cytometric assay for bacterial screening of platelet concentrates on day 2… (More)
