Pre-Storage Leukocyte reduced RBCs by filtration

Leucocytes (WBC) are present in varying concentrations in all cellular blood components. These can lead to alloimmunisation and other complications in immune compromised patients. Prathama have facility to prepare special blood products such as Leucocyte-reduced red cells to prevent or reduce the adverse effects of contaminating leucocytes.

Leukocyte reduced RBCs are collected in special blood bags. This blood component is required for immune compromised patients, Thallassemia, intra uterine transfusions and neonates. This ensures 3 log reduction of leucocytes in RBCs that reduces chances of transfusion reactions

Pre-Storage filtration eliminates accumulation of chemicals like cytokines.
