    Gambro BCT recently began to receive an increased number of reports of significantly lower yields/concentrations on platelet products that were collected on the Trima Accel Automated Blood Collection System. The problem is related to a weak connector weld within the separation channel of the tubing set. Not all tubing sets are affected. For tubing sets affected by this problem, the resulting platelet product has an acceptable volume, but a significantly lower platelet yield/concentration (typically less than 70% of predicted). Consignees have been asked to either use lot numbers 07K and above, and return any 05K and 06K product remaining in inventory OR perform pre-release platelet counts on the final product collected using a 05K or 06K lot.
