On June 28, hemostasis researcher Dave McGlasson asked George, “what temperatures do most of us use to store centrifuged, platelet-poor plasma when testing is delayed?” We assumed most of us use –70ºC freezers, but it may be that many lab practitioners use alternative specimen storage protocols.
George offered to post Dave’s question as our July, 2017 Quick Question. As always, please answer our Quick Question, but feel free to add your comments if your protocol varies from the answers provided. Further, if you know of any published studies comparing storage temperatures, please post the reference in our comments section. Thank you.
