Title: PLATELET COLLECTION METHOD AND COLLECTION SYSTEM THEREFOR
Abstract:
This platelet collection method involves a step for storing whole blood in a first chamber (44) and centrifugally separating the whole blood, a step for transferring the centrifugally separated buffy coat to a second chamber (50), a step for centrifugally separating the buffy coat, thereafter, a step for transferring a centrifugally separated platelet-containing component to a third chamber (52), and a step for centrifugally separating the platelet-containing component. The collection method also involves a step for introducing a solution to which platelets were added to the third chamber (52), and replacing with centrifugally separated plasma, and a step for collecting the platelets remaining in the third chamber (52) along with the solution to which platelets were added.
