Erythrocyte Lysis Solution (ELS) is a simple pretreatment for heavily bloodstained amniotic fluid or bone marrow samples, which quickly removes heavy red blood cell (erythrocyte) contamination. Unlike may similar products used in molecular biology that lysis red blood cells, this product is extremely gentle in its action and is specially suited for cell culture work. It is well documented that high concentrations of red blood cells inhibit growth of cells from amniotic fluid for instance by restricting colony size. This product will not prevent maternal contamination from occurring because it has no effect on white blood cells.
