Oxygen Depletion Device (ODD)
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).
