BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to examine the effects of a new riboflavin-based pathogen reduction technology (PRT), the Mirasol PRT process (Navigant Biotechnologies) on platelet (PLT) storage lesion development. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS A three-arm in vitro study was conducted comparing cell quality of apheresis PLTs (n = 12 each) treated with Mirasol PRT (M) to untreated (C) and gamma-irradiated units (X) collected from the same donors and stored for up to 7 days under equal… CONTINUE READING
