In August 2017, Canadian Blood Services changed its platelet product testing procedure to improve the detection of bacterial contamination. This change enhanced the safety of Canadian Blood Services platelet products and provided the opportunity to improve inventory management by extending the platelet shelf life from five to seven days.

Chapter 2

Whole blood donations are separated into specific cellular (red blood cells and platelets) and plasma components. Transfusing the appropriate blood component to effectively provide for the clinical needs of patients optimizes use of donated blood.

This chapter describes the manufacturing process for the most commonly prepared blood components:

  • Red blood cells (RBC)
  • Platelets: pooled and apheresis
  • Frozen plasma (FP)
  • Apheresis fresh frozen plasma (AFFP)
  • Cryosupernatant plasma (CSP)
  • Cryoprecipitate
