Abstract : Baboon platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was stored in a 150 ml filter flask at 22 + or - 2 C for up to 15 days. The pH of the PRP was maintained at 7.4 by adding 6 + or N KOH or 6 N HCL during the storage period. Reduced 51 Chromium platelet survivals immediately after transfusion and reduced lifespan values were observed when the platelet-rich plasma was stored at 22 C at pH 7.4 for 3 days or longer. Significant contamination was seen in the platelet-rich plasma afer 7 days of storage.
