A CPD/ADSOL triple-bag system was used to produce plasma, buffy coat and resuspended erythrocytes. These components could be produced in a quadruple-bag system when working according to the conventional technique. In the experimental technique, buffy coat and plasma are transferred together into the satellite bag and are separated from each other only after the second centrifugation. The plasma complement system is not activated and factor IXa is not generated when applying the experimental technique. The quality of plasma meets the international requirements. The blood component processing technique using a triple-bag system is less expensive compared to the quadruple-bag one.
