Hemoglobin vesicles (HbV, diameter: 251 +/- 81 nm) are artificial oxygen (O2) carriers encapsulating concentrated hemoglobin (Hb) solution with phospholipid bilayer membrane, and their O2 transporting ability in vivo has been extensively studied. It is important to clarify the interference of the HbV suspension in clinical laboratory tests performed on… CONTINUE READING
