Apheresis

(Science: haematology, procedure) a technique in which blood products are separated from a donor and the desired elements collected and the rest returned to the donor.

this has the advantage of specificity and a good harvest, for example a good platelet collection may be obtained from two or three donors in which the conventional method would involve up to ten donors.
