Cerus is pleased to participate at the 27th regional congress of the ISBT, one of the premier congresses and international forums for blood transfusion science and medicine worldwide. This year 16 abstracts (including 3 orals) featured experiences with the INTERCEPT Blood System for platelets, plasma and red blood cells.  New data presented supports the European launch of the triple storage platelet kit, development progress for the INTERCEPT Blood System for Red Blood Cells, as well as novel applications for pathogen-reduced cryoprecipitate and cryo-poor plasma.  

Please visit our booth in the main Exhibition area.
