22. I currently have a contract, how can I justify the added cost ?

Due to the way Hemosep recycles the cell species, it saves money by reducing the need to add platelets to a patient (the cost of platelets are £209.30 per bag with an average 1.2 bags being used per patient transfusion). Hemosep can save around £150 per patient, making it economical even if current cell salvage techniques are still in place.
