Figure 1: Platelet yield and recovery in blood collected with different anticoagulants. Blood was collected in EDTA, SC, and ACD in five different donors and platelet concentration was quantified (a) as well as platelet recovery after the first centrifugation step (b). An individual analysis between ACD and ACD-2 of platelet recovery was also performed (c). Data are expressed as bar (a), box (b), and dot (c) plots. Similar symbols in (b) correspond to statistic similarity among groups ().
