Red Blood Cells
Red blood cells are the most common type of blood cell and the vertebrate organism's principal means of delivering oxygen (O2) to the body tissues via the blood flow through the circulatory system. These cells' cytoplasm is rich in haemoglobin, an iron-containing biomolecule that can bind oxygen and is responsible for the blood's red color. In humans, mature red blood cells are oval and flexible biconcave disks.

Red Blood Cell Features
Source: Red blood cells collected at one of our 10 licensed blood centers located in the US (Memphis, Miami, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Jackson, Temple and Louisville) or at one of our more than 30 blood collection centers in Germany.
Donors Criteria: Donors have an approved consent for donating blood. All donors are screened to ensure that each of them is in good health condition and that products are not collected from a high-risk population for blood-borne infections.
Donor Data Provided: Age, gender, race, blood group and RBC extended phenotype available.
Use: Research and Development. Bulk quantities also available for further manufacturing of IVDreagents.
Viral Testing: Donors from the USA are tested for the standard FDA-required viral markers and found negative for HIV-1-NAT, HCV-NAT, HBV-NAT, WNV-NAT, anti-HIV ½, anti-HCV, HBsAg and syphilis using FDA-approved methods. Donors are also screened for Chagas and, when applicable, a licensed NAT for Babesia is performed.
Donors from Europe are tested for the standard European-required viral markers and found negative for HBsAg, anti-HBc, HIV-1/2-Ab, HCV-Ab, HIV-1-NAT, HCV-NAT, HBV-NAT, HAV-NAT, PVB19-NAT, HEV-NAT, WNV-NAT (tested from June to November) and syphilis.
