I would like to know whether hemolysis of blood occurs after the
treatment of any drug or before any treatment. If blood get hemolysed
after the administration of the drug, there is one possibility that
drug itself has property to lyse the red blood cells.
If you are collecting the blood to get serum, the moisture or even a
small drop of water in the tube will lyse the blood cells. Secondly, if
you are collecting plasma of the blood then concentration of
anticoagulant should be proper. In our lab, we use 1.5 mg of EDTA
(dipotassium salt) for 1 ml of blood, which gives us the clear plasma.

Dear Mahesh ,Back to the Top
You are talking about two different things? Property of drug to
haemolyse presuming isotonic environment,and coagulation in vitro as a
result of tonicity change?
