Different packs for convalescent plasma and fresh frozen plasma
The specification and volumes of the plasma remain the same.
While we are currently increasing COVID-19 convalescent plasma collection as part of the REMAP-CAP and RECOVERY trials we'll be using packs from several suppliers for convalescent plasma and fresh frozen plasma.
Some packs will look different and are slightly deeper than our usual ones, but please be assured that the specifications and volumes of plasma are the same.
