Fresh Frozen Plasma: Liquid portion of the blood is frozen and preserve to be used for blood transfusion

Random Donor Platelets: Platelets from different donors are consolidated to meet the requirement of patient’s (pooled platelets)

Single Donor Platelets: Platelets are obtained from the donor by apheresis process in a safe & controlled system.
