Banked Blood Grows Stiff with AgeIt may look like fresh blood and flow like fresh blood, but the longer blood is stored, the less it can carry oxygen into the tiny microcapillaries of the body, says a new study from Univ. of Illinois researchers.Using advanced optical techniques, the researchers measured the stiffness of the membrane surrounding red blood cells over time. They found that, even though the cells retain their shape and hemoglobin content, the membranes get stiffer, which steadily decreases the cells’ functionality.Read more: http://www.laboratoryequipment.com/news/2014/09/banked-blood-grows-stiff-age
