New Artificial Blood Product Developed

From the BBC: Scientists have developed an artificial plastic blood which could act as a substitute in emergencies. Researchers at Sheffield University said their creation could be a huge advantage in war zones. They say that the artificial blood is light to carry, does not need to be kept cool and can be kept for longer. More on this here.

Now if they could only avoid the same problems that the Polyheme trials ran into, which we blogged about before.
