Storage of platelets at 4°C in platelet additive solutions prevents aggregate formation and preserves platelet functional responses.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Platelet (PLT) storage has been limited to 5 days at room temperature due to metabolic decline and risk for bacterial contamination. Refrigeration preserves PLT metabolism and function as well as limits bacterial growth; however, cold storage of PLTs also leads to aggregate formation. We hypothesized that storage of PLT concentrates at 4°C leads… (More)
