Paediatric leucapheresis is a preferred mode of stem cell collection compared to bone marrow harvest. However, the inherent risks of this procedure like difficult venous access, citrate toxicity, large extracorporeal volume and haemodynamic instability are of considerable importance. Leucapheresis can be done by continuous flow centrifugation (CFC) or intermittent flow centrifugation (IFC) technology. Based on the total blood volume that is processed; it is standard or large volume leucapheresis. The use of IFC blood cell separator in paediatric low body weight child to perform large volume leucapheresis is discussed.
