The issues and costs of human blood collection and storage, direct this procedure towards the use of alternatives blood. Two important research fields of this area were oxygen carriers based on hemoglobin and perfluoro chemicals. While they do not have the same quality as the blood cell products, the oxygen carrier solutions have potential clinical and nonclinical applications. The result showed that these products can reach to the body tissues easier than normal red blood cells, and can control the oxygen directly.
