400 billion platelets

Platelets are smallest cell particles in your blood. An adult will have 150-400 billion platelets in every liter of blood. Among other things, platelets ensure that the blood clots when required. They have a very short shelf-life.

Platelets – the key to life

Platelet transfusions have saved countless lives, for example patients with leukemia or cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Chemotherapy treatment can cause platelet levels to fall so low that the patient may suffer spontaneous hemorrhaging. In such situations, supplying platelets will save their life.
