Case Study B4 - Case Discussion - Answer (Question 2)

Is it acceptable to ship RBC in the same container as other components such as platelets and fresh frozen plasma?

No. These components have different temperature requirements than RBC.

Platelets are stored and shipped at 20- 24°C. Fresh frozen plasma and other frozen blood components such as cryosupernatant plasma and cryoprecipitate must be shipped at a temperature sufficient to keep them frozen.
