Background  The mechanical fragility index (MFI) is an in vitro measurement of the extent of RBC sublethal injury. Sublethal injury might constitute a component of the RBC storage lesion, thus the MFI was determined serially during routine RBC storage. 
Haemolysis and sublethal injury of RBCs after routine blood bank manipulations
Objectives: To determine the extent of RBC sublethal injury in male donor units as measured by both the mechanical fragility index (MFI) and percentage haemolysis after RBCs underwent leucoreductionExpand
Menopausal status affects the susceptibility of stored RBCs to mechanical stress
TLDR
It is found that RBC units donated by post‐ menopausal women demonstrated an MFI that was significantly higher than those donated by pre‐menopausal women throughout storage. Expand
The impact of suctioning RBCs from a simulated operative site on mechanical fragility and hemolysis
TLDR
During static storage pre- menopausal female RBCs in CPD-preserved whole blood demonstrated higher shear stress tolerance compared to the males or post-menopausal females at all of the time points, but enhanced resistance was not observed after suctioning from a simulated surgical field. Expand
The effect of stationary versus rocked storage of whole blood on red blood cell damage and platelet function
Increasingly, cold‐stored whole blood (WB) is being considered for the resuscitation of civilian trauma patients. It is unclear whether the WB should be agitated to enhance the function of theExpand
RBC mechanical fragility as a direct blood quality metric to supplement storage time.
TLDR
Findings indicate that MF profiles can provide a powerful and versatile tool for investigation of RBC, as well as a potential metric of R BC quality. Expand
Red Blood Cell Mechanical Fragility Test for Clinical Research Applications
TLDR
The new reduced volume RBT and modified MFI will allow for the measurement of RBC MF in clinical and preclinical studies involving humans or small animals. Expand
Mechanical Fragility as a Potential Time-Independent Measure of Membrane Integrity among Stored RBC Units
TLDR
RBC membrane properties, as defined by MF, vary markedly across RBC units, and in some, within the same units which resulted in distinguishable subpopulations. Expand
Red blood cell mechanical stability test.
TLDR
The Couette type ektacytometer can be used as a tool to assess the sub-hemolytic damage to RBC in testing the biomedical equipment and estimate the hemolytic threshold as a measure of RBC mechanical stability. Expand
Storage-Induced Damage to Red Blood Cell Mechanical Properties Can Be Only Partially Reversed by Rejuvenation
TLDR
The findings of the present and preceding studies suggest that different St-RBC properties are differentially reversed by RJ, implying that some of the changes occur during storage and are irreversible. Expand
An approach to measuring RBC haemolysis and profiling RBC mechanical fragility
TLDR
This article reports on a unique approach to measuring haemolysis, without the need for centrifugation or other sample separation, utilising an electromagnet to cause a bead to oscillate within a cartridge that contains the sample. Expand

A comparison of hemolysis and red cell mechanical fragility in blood collected with different cell salvage suction devices
TLDR
This study compared a constant‐suction‐pressure system with a device that is expected to minimize hemolysis by automatically varying the suction pressure. Expand
Influence of storage on red blood cell rheological properties.
TLDR
Serious hemorrheological disorders, including the decrease in RBC deformability secondary to shape abnormalities, acidosis, and the decrease of blood clotting, start already at the second week of storage and progress up to the end of the storage period. Expand
Alteration of red cell aggregability and shape during blood storage
TLDR
Storage of blood units has been reported to induce changes in red cells that are expected to alter their aggregability, and this study aims to evaluate the effects of storage time on red cells' aggregability. Expand
Mechanical Fragility Calibration of Red Blood Cells
TLDR
Five mechanical fragility test systems are compared and all seem to measure the same parameter; the hemoresistometer most closely matched the pump test results, but the stainless steel bead test may be the most practical for routine calibration purposes. Expand

TLDR
Results of this study demonstrate the potential feasibility of Fluosol to improve mechanical properties of blood in patients with heart assist devices and reduce mechanical fragility of human and ovine red blood cells. Expand
Transfusion of stored red blood cells adhere in the rat microvasculature
TLDR
This study determined whether duration of RBC storage and LR influence RBC adhesion in vivo in capillaries and showed that human RBCs adhere to endothelial monolayers in vitro with prolonged storage and is reduced by prestorage leukoreduction. Expand
Effect of red cell age on vesiculation in vitro
TLDR
Microvesiculation of RBC occurs in vivo and during in vitro storage and quantitation of protein, cholesterol and phospholipids showed significantly larger amounts in the vesicles shed by the younger RBC than by the older RBC. Expand

BACKGROUND : The effects of storage duration, WBC reduction, and irradiation on RBC adherence to vascular endothelia are unknown and are investigated under conditions of continuous flow.

The rheologic properties and cell variables of leukoreduced RBC units, during routine blood bank storage in saline‐adenine‐glucose‐mannitol, were investigated. Expand
