I guess it has something to do with blood being an organic material. It is no problem creating blood plasma (take 1 liter of distilled water, add 9 grams of salt, and voila, start your infusion). That's what it's made of, but it's not safe because the water surely has some germs in it, which would kill you sometime later. The white and red blood cells, that's the problem, because, as I already said, it is impossible to create organic material.

It can be replaced however.

Sometime in the 1960s a viable substitute was first developed and tested in rabbits. As it was white in colour the eyes of the rabbits turned white.

Because of all the other stuff concerning immune cells and red cell replenishment it was never developed into anything else, but it did work.

Actually, I have read in a magazine (somewhere in the 80s or early 90s ) that this white blood substitute had been made available for humans. Never heard of it ever since, though.

LOL and LOL.

As L-188 said researchers around the world are working on synthetic blood. It probably won't be in the form of a cell, but more in the lines of injectible protein. I'm willing to bet synthetic blood will be around in the next 10-15 years.

You do realize that is far from true, right? We generate organic materials in a wide variety every day. Proteins, amino acids, fake genes. The list goes on forever.


The clinical trials of replacement blood have apparently gone very well, but researchers are understandably cautious.

I think maybe because blood is coded so pricesly that it would take years and years to master. And if its not 100% correct the person may die...Just a guess

The nice thing about synthetic blood is that they could engineer out the antigens that are on your blood cells now that cause the immune response if you get blood that is not your type.
