Abstract : Some model studies of the biophysical properties of stroma free hemoglobin and whole blood mixtures have been investigated. The research included the determination of the viscosity, osmotic pressure, the erythrocyte sedimentation rate, the hemolytic malonamide kinetics and osmotic fragility. These preliminary studies indicate that the concentration of the stroma free hemoglobin plays a critical role in mixtures with whole blood.
