Abstract

In 1986 Högman et al were the first to report on automated and improved preparation of blood components by using a multiple bag system with top and bottom drainage of the primary bag [1]. We want to report on more extensive studies with improved results using a modified top and bottom system of another manufacturer (Fig. 1). In addition, part of the study was performed also with a new automated separation device.
