Packed red cells, platelet concentrate and fresh frozen plasma are prepared using cryofuge, following strict quality controlled procedures. These are stored in refrigerators / deep freezers. Two automated blood cell separators from Haemonetics are available for single donor platelet collection, leucapheresis and stem cell harvesting.
