The ability to readily identify dead platelets is invaluable to studies examining the means of their death, factors affecting their lifespan and their means of clearance by phagocytes. The aim of the present work was to develop a vital staining procedure for the rapid and objective discrimination of live from dead platelets that accrued in citrated platelet rich plasma (cPRP) incubated at 37 degrees C for several days. By transmission electron microscopy it was noted that platelet death was… CONTINUE READING
