Blood transfusion and Hematology in Ho Chi Minh City with the project "Evaluating the effectiveness of using frozen red blood cell preparation in Ho Chi Minh City". Thereby the hospital has studied the storage of red blood cells by freezing technology at -80 degrees Celsius with high glycerol concentration, can be stored for up to 10 years compared to conventional methods of blood can only save 42 days.

This work, which was first implemented in Vietnam, is a step forward for cryogenic technology. Ho Chi Minh City Blood Transfusion and Hematology Hospital has become a pioneer in the country to implement and allocate frozen red blood cells to many other hospitals.
