With recent epidemics of Dengue fever continuous supply of platelets has become a must for successful treatment. Patients with cancer also require platelets to maintain blood counts, so they can receive doses of chemotherapy. To help these patients on regular basis blood bank is equipped with Fresenius Kabi Com.Tek Blood Cell Separator for Apheresis and other component separator facilities. With Apheresis donors can donate platelets to a patient 2 times per week. This helps in decreasing multiple donor exposure for patients, so that there are decreased chances of exposure to antigen from multiple donors and Transfusion Transmitted Infections.

With component separation facilities every unit of donated blood can be fractioned into Red Cell Concentrate (RCC), Platelets Concentrate (PC) and Fresh Frozen Plasma (FFP). With component separation facilities every donor can help a minimum of 3 patients.
