Table 1 Platelet and white blood cell (WBC) concentrations, and hematocrit in blood and platelet-rich plasma (PRP)

From: The effect of four different freezing conditions and time in frozen storage on the concentration of commonly measured growth factors and enzymes in equine platelet-rich plasma over six months

  WBC (× 103/μl) Platelet (× 103/μl) Hematocrit (%)
Whole Blood 5.3 ± 0.3 107.7 ± 2.7 31.4 ± 3.1
PRP 11.7 ± 1.8 † 534.8 ± 19.8 † 2.8 ± 1.8 †
p-value 0.0100 < 0.0001 < 0.0001
  1. Values reported as mean (n = 6) ± standard error. (†) indicates significant difference between PRP and whole blood using a paired t-test, p < 0.05
