INVESTIGATIONS INTO THE RELATION BETWEEN DEGREE OF HAEMOLYSIS AND WATER CONTENT OF SERUM IN STORED BLOOD SAMPLES

UNTERSUCHUNGEN UEBER BEZIEHUNGEN ZWISCHEN DEM HAEMOLYSEGRAD UND DEM SERUMWASSERGEHALT IN GELAGERTEN BLUTPROBEN

In forty samples of blood which were each divided into three sterile test tubes the water content, the haemoglobin and the protein content of the serum were determined within 24 hours of taking the sample and subsequently after 3, 6, 9 and 12 months of storage. The statistical evaluation of the results of the investigation showed clear relations between the changes on the one hand in protein and haemoglobin content of the serum and in the water content of the serum and degree of haemolysis on the other. However, the haemolysis followed a different time function for each blood sample. By determination of the alcohol concentration, the haemoglobin and water content in the asservat it is possible, by calculating the individual rates of change of water content in the serum, to obtain accurate conclusions concerning the alcohol concentration in the fresh blood sample. The stages of calculation necessary for this are shown. (TRRL)
