Cryoprecipitate is a human blood component obtained from fresh frozen plasma (FFP) prepared from a unit of whole blood (WB).
One unit of cryoprecipitate derived from a unit of whole blood contains a volume of 10-20 mL, 80-100 units of factor VIII which consists of both the procoagulant activity and the von Willebrand factor, 150-250 mg of fibrinogen, 50-100 units of factor XIII, and 50-60 mg of fibronectin.
