With Carolina’s synthetic blood, your students can get realistic blood-typing results without using lancets and drawing blood. That means no concerns about blood-borne disease transmission. Students follow the same procedures used in actual blood typing. Synthetic blood can also be stored at room temperature, so you can use it whenever you need it. When you’re done, the synthetic product can be easily and safely discarded because it poses no health hazards.
Our synthetic blood has several advantages over other suppliers’ products, which usually depend on chemical reactions producing insoluble salts that precipitate from solution. These products do not give visually realistic results. In actual blood typing, red blood cells form clumps (the agglutination reaction) that separate from the blood plasma. When mixed with the appropriate synthetic antiserum, Carolina’s synthetic blood forms clumps in the same way, for a realistic blood-typing result. It’s the closest to authentic blood typing that you can get without using real blood.
