Packed human blood cells
Stedman's medical dictionary:
packed human blood cells
whole blood from which plasma has been removed; may be prepared any time during the dating period of the whole blood from which it is derived, but not later than six days after the blood has been drawn if separation of plasma and cells is achieved by centrifugation.

transfusion of packed red [blood] cells and blood derivatives
In Medicine, we usually say "packed red cells". Another synonym is "concentrated red cells".
Buchanan EC.Blood and blood substitutes for treating hemorragic shock.Am J Hosp Pharm 1977 Jun;34(6):631-6
Blood substitute products for the treatment of hemorrhagic shock are discussed with regard to their composition, physical and therapeutic characteristics, adverse effects, cost, and market availability. Commercially available plasma expanders discussed include **blood derivatives** (whole blood, **packed red blood cells**, plasma, normal human serum albumin, and plasma protein fraction), synthetic colloids (dextrans 40 and 70) and a balanced salt solution (lactated Ringer's injection).....
Raftos JE, Stewart IM, Lovric VA. Supernatant hemoglobin determinations after prolonged blood storage. Pathology 1986 Jan;18(1):123-6
Measurement of extracellular hemoglobin is useful for assessing the relative success of different blood storage strategies. The test is now also included in routine quality assurance procedures. With the recent trend towards transfusion of **concentrated red cells** resuspended in "additive" solutions, a safe and efficient method for the estimation of hemoglobin in these units is required. We have developed a method suitable for this purpose, based on the formation of cyanomethemoglobin. Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) methods were also investigated and shown to detect hemoglobin and **hemoglobin derivatives** quantitatively when present in packed cell supernatants. A close correlation was recorded between the estimates of supernatant hemoglobin using the 2 techniques with 68 stored **red cell concentrates.** Because of its simplicity, adequate sensitivity and avoidance of carcinogenic benzidine derivatives, we recommend the cyanomethemoglobin method for routine use in the measurement of supernatant hemoglobin in stored modified **red cell concentrates**.
