    stopping blood coagulating

    Anybody know if there is anything that can added to blood to stop it coagulating before i get the chance to freeze it

  2. #2
    Salt does the trick

  3. #3
    do you know the approx amounts

    Asprin, Warfrin, Brodifacoum, Phenindione or Heparin, however i presume you have a need for this blood, proably for consumption? as such i wouldnt be using any of the anticoagulants i have mentioned for obvious reasons, and geting hold of them could be difficult.

    As said salt might work for your application.

    I will second that, I use salt.

    If you are collecting it fresh/warm before it starts to coagulate,stir it with a stick and the clotting will form around the stick which is easily removed any smaller lumps can be sieved out before freezing...

    Sieve the blood and clots through muslin cloth, it will remove the fibrin and will not clot.

    I can't claim great experience and the above two approaches may well be better, but in my case the measure was something like a tablespoon or so to something approaching a pint of blood. That is pretty approximate as we didn't have a measure.
