Service Overview

About the Hemolysis Assay

We measure in vitro hemolysis by evaluating hemoglobin release as a marker of red blood cell lysis following test agent exposure. Exposure to drugs (biologics or excipients) can cause hemolysis, even in normal adults, potentially resulting in neutropenia, thrombocytopenia, hemolytic anemia, aplastic anemia, and macrocytic anemia. Therefore, according to FDA recommendations, testing for hemolytic potential should be performed.
