The quality of the blood test results is often related to hemolysis. Hemolysis of blood cannot be eliminated but by making certain reservations hemolysis it can be reduced.
Transportation of blood samples and the temperature can affect the quality of the blood samples and result in hemolysis before they are centrifuged.
The G-force has often been one of the suspected criteria for hemolysis of blood samples. A recent study from Greifswald University Hospital showed, that transport of blood samples in the pneumatic transportation system Tempus600 did not affect the samples, though the samples were exposed to 16 G there was no hemolysis. On the other hand hemolysis of a blood sample can occur if it is dropped once on a table. It seems like the sudden shake of a blood sample is worse than a high steady G-effect.
Financial reasons to reduce hemolysis are obvious because of the costs of blood samples that are rejected due to poor quality: The patients must come back to the hospital, the staff must collect the blood and the blood samples must be transported again. This is a very time demanding and expensive process.
The conclusion is, that when blood samples are quickly stabilized and transported gently the risk of hemolysis can be minimized but not removed.
