How It Works


How plasma was taken from blood


1 Separation Drew and his team used centrifuga­tion and sedimentat­ion to separate plasma from the blood.

2 Extraction Plasma was then removed and pooled together under ultraviole­t light to prevent contaminat­ion.

3 Bacteria To prevent bacteria infiltrati­ng the batches of blood, an anti-bacterial called Merthiolat­e was added.

4 Storage Plasma was then diluted with saline solution and sealed for shipping.
