AcrodoseSM Platelet: A Greener Approach to Whole Blood Processing
Making use of every component to reduce waste and create a more effective blood management approach: Acrodose™ Systems allow your blood center to maximize the use of whole blood (WB)-derived platelets, making them a more cost effective option than apheresis platelets, and making use of this essential third component from WB collections. As a result, blood centers can expect increased product availability, fewer product shortages, and less need to import. An Acrodose Platelet offers a safe, efficient, and readily-available alternative in platelet transfusion safety:
- It is not a random donor platelet. An Acrodose platelet is a value-added product that is pooled, leukoreduced, ABO matched, and culture-base tested for bacteria.
- It is not a single donor platelet. An Acrodose Platelet provides a therapeutic dose of platelets equivalent to a single donor platelet (in terms of platelet count and quality), but at a lower cost.
