Summary

Platelets isolated from the blood of donors vigorously consume oxygen and carry on glycolysis, under both anaerobic and aerobic conditions. Addition of glucose brings about a reduction in the oxygen consumption rate. During storage of a platelet suspension under sterile conditions at 4° C., respiration and the ability to accumulate lactic acid are preserved. The level of the readily hydrolyzable phosphorus fraction remains relatively constant.
