In Vitro Evaluation Of Hemerus Apex™ Additive Solution For Preservation Of Cpda-1 Whole Blood As Compared To Cpda-1 Whole Blood Without Additive Solution

Posted Date: Sep 27, 2022

  • Investigator: Jose Cancelas

  • Type of Study: Drug

Hemerus Medical, LLC is developing a new formulation of anticoagulant preservative that will yield similar or improved quality whole blood (WB) providing an extended shelf life to at least 42 days compared to the current 21-day product (Citrate Phosphate Dextrose [CPD] anticoagulant) or 35-day product (Citrate Phosphate Dextrose Adenine [CPDA-1] anticoagulant). The hypothesis is that reformulation of anticoagulant-preservative solution will provide longer shelf life for WB with acceptable red blood cell (RBC) quality, platelet function, and plasma factor stability over the conventional CPDA-1 anticoagulant.
