Blood storage - (Nov/30/2010 )

How long can I keep whole blood or packed Red blood cells refigerated?

I'm planning on using it as a base for a dried blood spot standard. Thanks.



Depends on the blood sample and how you preserve them. From my experience, human, bovine, rabbits last roughly for a week. Rats lasted for few days.
