Please ensure staff are aware the preparation time for washed platelets is being extended to 8.5 hours

from 1 October 2022

27 September 2022

12 October editorial note - amendment to title: 'order time' changed to 'preparation time'. 


We have identified that platelets in InterSol additive solution require more time to process than the solution (SSP) we used previously.

Consequently, we need to extend the preparation time from 6 hours to 8.5 hours (the Component Portfolio will be updated).

If you have any questions please email
