To quantitate the microparticles (MPs) in whole blood and blood products obtained from blood donors who are deficient in glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD). The current study analyzed whole blood and blood components prepared from 49 blood donors with G6PD deficiencies and 98 with G6PD-normal results. Packed red blood cells (PRBCs), platelet concentrate (PC), and plasma were prepared according to transfusion laboratory procedures. MP concentrations were determined using a flow cytometer. Blood components prepared from donors with G6PD deficiency were characterized by higher red blood cell-derived MP (RMP) concentration in PRBCs (25,526 vs 18,738 particles/µL) but lower concentrations of platelet-derived MPs (PMPs; in whole blood and PC), leukocyte-derived MPs (LMP; in whole blood and plasma) and total MP (in PC), compared with those from donors with G6PD-normal test results. These results suggest that differences in G6PD status may account for variation in RMP levels during processing. © American Society for Clinical Pathology, 2021. All rights reserved.
