Red blood cells

 

Red blood cells - a blood component obtained from a whole dose of donor blood by centrifugation and subsequent removal of most of the plasma. The component consists of red blood cells (70-80%) and plasma (20-30%) mixed with white blood cells and platelets.





Red blood cells washed by the manul method

 

Washed red blood cells - a component obtained by centrifuging whole blood and removing plasma, followed by washing of red blood cells in a 0.9% sodium chloride solution for infusion.

The washed red blood cells are a suspension of red blood cells from which most of the plasma, white blood cells and platelets are removed. In the process of washing, plasma proteins, white blood cells, platelets, microaggregates of cells and stroma, destroyed during storage of cellular components, are removed.



Red blood cell with removed leukotrombocyte layer

 

Red blood cells with a removed leukocyte platelet layer - a blood component obtained from a whole dose of donor blood by centrifugation and subsequent removal of most of the plasma, white blood cells and platelets. Red blood cells with a removed leukocyte platelet layer consist of red blood cells (70-80%) and plasma (20-30%) without the admixture of leukocytes and platelets.
