Background: Platelet activity can be assessed by platelet volume indices like MPV, PDW & P-LCR.
Aim: To develop an approach in blood bank professional, a habit of looking at platelet indices in hematology analyzer report of aphaeresis donors & QC samples of platelet aphaeresis products.
Methods and materials: A retrospective data analysis was done for 271 platelet aphaeresis procedures conducted on CS3000 plus with AMS cell separator, Fenwal, USA& COM.TEC, Fresenius Kabi, Germany. Samples of the donors were collected before aphaeresis & 1 to 2 ml sample from each bag was collected in the satellite pouch attached to bag & analysis was done on day 0 & day 7. Platelet parameters were measured on automated hematology analyzers SYSMEX KX-21 & Horiba Micros 60.Statistical analysis: Statistical analysis was done by calculating ‘r value’ & a paired t test at 95 % confidence interval. A P value of

Key words: Plateletphaeresis, MPV, yield, storage lesion, Platelet derived micro particles
