THE optical density of platelet-rich citrated plasma or of platelet suspensions has been seen to decrease irreversibly on the addition of a solution of dextran1. This decrease is biphasic, consisting of an immediate optical clearing effect independent of the molecular weight of the dextran fraction but related to its final concentration, and a delayed… CONTINUE READING
