Pall launches new products to increase supply of safe blood
Date:10/22/2007

East Hills, NY (October 22, 2007) -- Pall Corporation (NYSE: PLL) launches the new AcrodoseTM PLus System to ensure patients receive the safest possible platelet transfusion -- no matter what type of system blood centers use to collect donated blood.

The new technologies are being showcased at the AABB annual meeting for transfusion medicine in Anaheim, California this week.

Pall was granted FDA clearance for marketing the AcrodoseTM PL System two years ago; initially applicable to blood centers in the U.S. that use a Pall collection and filtration system for whole-blood platelet collection. The new Acrodose PLus System provides blood centers with greater operational flexibility, and allows them to use any collection system for whole blood platelet preparation -- ultimately giving more patients the benefits of an Acrodose Platelet. The expanded use of the Acrodose PLus with all collection systems is especially valuable for blood centers that cannot currently change their established blood processing practices due to procedural or contractual obligations, validation and other requirements.

The original Acrodose PL System addressed concerns regarding platelet shortages in many parts of the country due to a growing dependence on apheresis (single-donor) platelets, and platelet safety, especially bacterial contaminat
