Abstract  

The survival of erythrocytes is measured using50Cr labelling followed by neutron activation analysis. The measured half-life of50Cr tagged autologous erythrocytes in the rhesus monkey (17.9±2.7 d) compares favorably with the value of 17.1±1.4 d measured using the standard method of radioactive51Cr labelling. With the use of stable chromium as a tagging agent, erythrocyte kinetics can be monitored without the problems associated with the use of radioactive isotopes. The method presented is highly reproducible and eliminates the necessity of any chemical separation of chromium. The results of both50Cr and51Cr labelled erythrocyte survival studies are presented.
