27 April 2018 (Friday) - Artificial Blood ?

Artificially created red cells… specifically designed with very few (if any) antigenic sites… It would certainly make for much safer blood transfusions if it were possible.

Mind you I was told (on my first week in the job) that artificial blood was only a year or so away, and realistically my retirement will come first.
However it is still an intriguing prospect.
