Hemanext had a major presence at the 2017 AABB Annual Meeting where we showcased our Hemanext RBC Processing System and Microvascular Analyzer (MVA) technology, our proprietary solution for assessing deformability of stored red blood cells.
Our centrally located booth was well received and allowed us to share our story and present our work to the blood banking community. In addition to our booth presence, we presented three accepted abstracts detailing research on oxygen and carbon dioxide reduced red blood cell storage including:
- Transfusion of Anaerobically Stored Red Blood Cells Improves Recovery in Experimental Rat Hemorrhagic Shock Model
- Unexpected Variability of Hemoglobin Oxygen Saturation in Packed Red Blood Cells Upon Donation Suggests Uncontrolled and Overlooked Parameter Associated with the Development of the Storage Lesion
- Hypoxia Modulates the Purine Salvage Pathway and Decreases Cell and Supernatant Levels in Hypoxanthine, a Predictor of 24h In Vivo Survival of Stored Mouse and Human Red Blood Cells

AABB is a great place to meet with colleagues, make new connections and learn about what is going on in the industry. Our first AABB was a great success, and we look forward to next year’s AABB!
