Abstract

Plateletpheresis using the AS TEC 204 cell separator with PAIP is a valid alternative to WBC reduction by filtration. It may provide WBC-reduced platelet concentrates without the additional cost of filters. However, the reliability of the WBC reduction is not yet advanced enough that PAIP can be employed without any monitoring of the end product.
