Acid Citrate Dextrose Solution

Acid Citrate Dextrose Solution (ACD Solution) is a preservation solution utilized in blood banking and transfusion medicine to maintain the viability of blood specimens for laboratory tests and procedures. Comprising citric acid, sodium citrate, and dextrose, ACD Solution prevents blood clotting by chelating calcium ions, thus acting as an anticoagulant. Meanwhile, dextrose serves as a nutrient source to sustain cell viability during storage. Widely employed for collecting and preserving whole blood or blood components like red blood cells, platelets, and plasma, ACD Solution is pivotal in procedures requiring viable blood cells, including blood typing, crossmatching, and certain diagnostic tests. Additionally, it finds application in research laboratories for isolating and culturing specific cell types from whole blood samples.
