  • Plateletapheresis/Single donor platelets(SDPs)

Single donor platelet apheresis is collected from healthy donors using the apheresis machines. These platelets can effectively increase the platelet count and maximally utilized by patients with Hemato Oncological disorders. Single donor platelets reduce the number of donor exposures compared to random donor platelets prepared from whole blood donations.
