Despite current preventive strategies, bacterial contamination of platelets is the highest residual infectious risk in transfusion. Bacteria can grow from an initial concentration of 0.03–0.3 colony‐forming units (CFUs)/mL up to 108 to 109 CFUs/mL over the product shelf life. The aim of this study was to develop a cost‐effective approach for an early, rapid, sensitive, and generic detection of bacteria in platelet concentrates.
