Platelets - 1
Platelets, or thrombocytes, are small, colorless cell fragments in human blood that form clots and stop or prevent bleeding. Platelets are made in bone marrow, the sponge-like tissue inside bones.

Source: The donation is collected at one of our 10 licensed blood centers located in the US (Memphis, Miami, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Jackson, Temple and Louisville) or at one of our more than 30 blood collection centers in Germany. Whole blood or source plasma is then further processed in our processing centers to produce the platelets.
Collection Method: Platelets from the US are collected through blood donations. Platelets from Germany are collected through plasmapheresis and arepathogen reducted.
Donors Criteria: Donors have an approved consent for donating blood. All donors are screened to ensure that each of them is in good health condition and that products are not collected from a high-risk population for blood-borne infections.
Donor Data Provided: Age, gender, race and blood group.
Use: Research and Development. Bulk quantities also available for further manufacturing of IVD reagents.
Viral Testing: Donors from the US are tested for the standard FDA-required viral markers and found negative for HIV-1-NAT, HCV-NAT, HBV-NAT, WNV-NAT, anti-HIV ½, anti-HCV, HBsAg and syphilis using FDA-approved methods. Donors are also screened for Chagas and, when applicable, a licensed NAT for Babesia is performed.
Donors from Europe are tested for the standard European-required viral markers and found negative for HBsAg, anti-HBc, HIV-1/2-Ab, HCV-Ab, HIV-1-NAT, HCV-NAT, HBV-NAT, HAV-NAT, PVB19-NAT, HEV-NAT, WNV-NAT (tested from June to November) and syphilis.
