Japanese firm Terumo claimed that artificial blood it developed won't pass on viral or bacterial infections. So said Nihon Keizai Shimbun , reporting on the claims.

Not only is the artificial blood sterilised during its manufacture, but Terumo claims it uses so-called artificial red blood cells to be carriers for oxygen.

Clinical tests on humanoids are set to start this time next year and alleviate the worldwide blood shortage.
