Our Science

Learn about the journey of red blood cells after donation including degradation that occurs during storage and discover the potential of hypoxic storage to alleviate this problem.

Stored Blood

The average human body stores about 5.6 liters of blood. As it circulates through the body several times each minute, it accomplishes a variety of functions.

Storage Lesion

The existence of the storage lesion process has been well established, and recent scientific work has increased the precision and depth.

Clinical Implications

Numerous studies pertaining to clinical implications of storage lesion suggest a linkage to hyper-coagulability, inflammation, impaired perfusion, immuno-modulation, organ dysfunction13, and mortality14.

Hypoxic Storage

Hemanext is developing a technology to enable the storage of RBC under hypoxic conditions. Removing O2 during storage removes the primary “fuel” for oxidative stress1-11.
