Fig. S1. Platelet clumping within the Trima apheresis kit. If the pre-apheresis platelet count was greater than 300 × 109/mL, a higher anticoagulant concentration (ACD-A) was selected as detailed in the operator's manual to avoid further platelet clumping. Clumping was reduced by increasing the anticoagulant:product ratio.
Data S1. Our quality control data collection sheet was based on that suggested in the Trima owners' manual.
Data S2. Detailed description of the plateletapheresis procedure.
