Gerald A Grode, Jeffrey E Miripol: Red cell storage solution. Baxter Travenol Laboratories, Paul Flattery, John Caruso, Garrettson Ellis, May 12, 1981: US04267269 (54 worldwide citation)

An aqueous red cell storage solution for packed cells which permits removal of essentially all plasma from a unit of blood, followed by reconstitution of the packed cells of the unit in preferably about 80 to 150 ml. of solution for improved cell viability on long term storage. The red cell storage ...

Baxter Travenol Laboratories, Paul Flattery, John A Caruso, Q Todd Dickinson, September 1, 1981: US04286597 (35 worldwide citation)

Blood-compatible, chlorine-free polymers such as a flexible, non-toxic, sterilizable polyester plastic formulation may contain from 5 to 70 percent by weight of a blood-extractable plasticizer such as di-2-ethylhexyladipate, to cause blood which is stored in contact with the polymer to exhibit a sur ...

A solution for stabilizing red blood cells during storage contains, along with nutrients and other stabilizers, a safe and effective concentration of an inhibitor of a step of the glycolysis metabolic pathway which is subsequent to the step which forms 2,3-DPG. The inhibitor may be oxalic acid, sodi ...
