About the Event
Platelets are crucial in treating a number of diseases, yet every year 10% of our supply of life-saving platelets are wasted due to their extremely short shelf life. This costs millions of dollars and endangers thousands of lives.
Cellular Preservation Technologies (CPT) has developed a patented medical device that increases the shelf life of platelets to 14 days working with the Vitalant, American Red Cross, Mayo Clinic, and others.
Hear why this is such a critical issue from Larry Dumont, M.B.A., Ph.D., Director & Senior investigator at the Vitalant Research Institute. Vitalant is the nation’s largest independent, nonprofit blood services provider.
In this webinar, Cellular Preservation Technology CEO, John Librie and Dr. Dumont discuss how extending the shelf life of platelets can save thousands of lives and millions of dollars.
