Separation of Platelet Populations from Human and Rat Blood. Method and Applications

  • H. Vainer
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 28)


It is presently accepted that circulating platelets exist in a dynamic steady state. By submitting them to centrifugation on density gradients, platelets are separated into subpopulations of various densities. Platelet density is related to cellular morphology, metabolic potential, functional activity and to platelet age (2, 7, 13, 14).
