Concentration of leucodepleted red blood cells with added solution (concentration of filtered red blood cells with added solution)
Red blood cells from a total blood unit, without plasma and filtered to eliminate most of the leucocytes, in an added solution (SAG-Manitol).
HOW IT IS OBTAINED
The total blood is centrifuged to separate the plasma (and also sometimes the leucoplatelet layer), from which the concentrations of platelets are made. The red blood cell concentrations are obtained and are mixed with the added solution. Filtering can be carried out from total blood or red blood cell concentrations.
COMPOSITION AND CHARACTERISTICS
