Stimulation of antibody following 51chromium survival studies.


The survival of red blood cells (RBCs) radiolabeled with 51Chromium (51Cr) is a reliable method for predicting transfusion compatibility. Approximately 1.0 ml of 51Cr tagged RBCs is infused into the patient and samples are drawn at predetermined intervals post infusion to determine RBC survival.
