BACKGROUND Bacterial screening may effectively reduce the morbidity and mortality risk associated with extended storage of platelets. Platelet viability then becomes the primary determinant of acceptable storage time. This study evaluates the effectiveness of platelets stored in plasma for 7 days. STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS WBC-reduced, single-donor platelets (n = 24) were collected and stored by standard methods at two sites. Standard in vitro platelet biochemical and functional parameters… CONTINUE READING
