Pathogen inactivation


Recommended Posts

Another important difference, at least in the US, is that INTERCEPT is approved/licensed for use with platelets and plasma but approval to use Mirasol in the U.S. is still pending (The Terumo website says Mirasol is "available in select markets". We went live with INTERCEPT for platelets earlier this year, been a generally positive experience. Downsides have been mostly related to collection targets (there are somewhat strict acceptance parameters for volume, platelet concentration and platelet content that required us to tweak our collection targets a fair bit) and the system isn't licensed for triple products, so we can only collect and process single and double collections.  We had previously irradiated all of our platelets, so it was a nice benefit to no longer have to irradiate once we implemented INTERCEPT.
