The aim of this study was to evaluate the Impact-R test for measuring changes in platelet function in stored platelet concentrates. Platelet function was measured within samples (reconstituted with red cells) taken from apheresis concentrates (n = 20) and buffy coat concentrates (n = 20) stored for up to 7 days. The final mean platelet counts and haematocrits in apheresis concentrates were 319 x 10(9)/l and 56.2%, and in buffy coat concentrates they were 296 x 10(9)/l and 54.6%, respectively....Expand abstract
