Plateletpheresis: Introduction

  • Apheresis is a procedure, wherein whole blood is withdrawn from donor or patient’s body, required blood components such as plasma, leukocytes, erythrocytes, and lipids are separated or removed, and remaining blood components are transfused back into donor or patient’s body.
  • Plateletpheresis is a process of removal of blood from donor or patient, separating and retaining the platelets, and returning the rest of the blood components to the donor or patient. Patients with leukemia, aplastic anemia, or cancer are recommended plateletpheresis.
  • The procedure is also used in essential thrombocytosis, bleeding, and during surgeries. Plateletpheresis finds applications in the wake of epidemic outbreaks such as Zika virus and malaria. Apheresis is performed by applying two techniques: centrifugation and membrane filtration. Membrane filtration involves separation of blood components based on molecular weight, size, and affinity for particular substance.
  • Centrifugation separates blood components based on molecular weight, centrifugal force, centrifugation RPM, and run time. The two types of centrifugation techniques are intermittent and continuous.

Key Drivers of Global Plateletpheresis Market

  • Rise in prevalence of cancer and other chronic diseases globally lead to high demand for platelets in the treatment of leukemia, cancer, and other severe conditions. This is projected to boost the growth of the global plateletpheresis market.
  • Moreover, safety of plateletpheresis over whole blood donation and rise in number of donors across the globe are anticipated to fuel the growth of the global plateletpheresis market. Improvement in health care infrastructure is another factor propelling the global plateletpheresis market.
  • Shift from single dose to double dose apheresis to increase the yield of platelet components being separated has pushed the industry toward development of technically advanced instruments. This also contributes to the growth of the global market.
  • Risks associated with apheresis procedure and stringent regulatory approval process for plateletpheresis devices are likely to hamper the growth of the global plateletpheresis market
