Anaerobically Stored Red Blood Cells with Extended Shelf Life

  • Develop a novel blood storage system that will extend the shelf life of additive system red cell units

  • Deliver red cells of higher efficacy and lower toxicity for transfusion therapy

  • Red cells are stored in a modified additive solution under oxygen-depleted condition (anaerobic storage).
