INTERCEPT® Goes Beyond

INTERCEPT® Blood System for Platelets Pathogen Reduction System

INTERCEPT® Blood System for Cryoprecipitation

for the manufacture of Pathogen Reduced Cryoprecipitated Fibrinogen Complex

INTERCEPT goes beyond to protect patients*, improve availability, and deliver value.

The INTERCEPT Blood System protects patients through broad-spectrum transfusion-transmitted infection (TTI) risk reduction with the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and leukocytes.1,2 Blood components are available earlier, resulting in fresher platelets that may be transfused sooner3,4 , and improving availability of fibrinogen† and other vital clotting factors when minutes matter.5 Economic and operational efficiencies are gained through waste and cost reduction associated with testing and TTI risks.6-8

*There is no pathogen inactivation process that has been shown to eliminate all pathogens. Certain non-enveloped viruses (e.g., HAV, HEV, B19 and poliovirus) and Bacillus cereus spores have demonstrated resistance to the INTERCEPT process. For a full list of pathogens, please refer to package inserts.
†INTERCEPT Fibrinogen Complex is available for immediate use for up to 5 days when stored thawed; and when stored frozen requires thawing prior to use.
