BD BACTEC™ platelet media now FDA-cleared

Platelets are more vulnerable to bacterial contamination due to storage conditions. The risk of receiving a bacteria-contaminated unit of platelets may be 50-250 times higher than the combined risk of transfusion-related infections associated with HIV and hepatitis.1
Testing platelet donations using culture-based methods may help to reduce the risk of sepsis.

BD BACTEC™ platelet media provides a culture-based method to detect platelet contamination.
