Acid Citrate Dextrose (ACD) Solution A



Acid Citrate Dextrose (ACD) Solution A, also known as Anticoagulant Citrate Dextrose Solution is used as an anti-coagulant for whole blood and erythrocyte survival, routinely used for blood storage. The ideal red blood cells shelf life is 21 days when stored in ACD solution. Red blood cells in ACD solution utilize glucose and their viability impairs when re-infused.


The ACD Solution A contains Citric acid (anhydrous) 7.3 g/L, Sodium citrate (dihydrate) 22.0 g/L and Dextrose (monohydrate) 24.5 g/L [USP]. Citrate-based anticoagulants prevent the coagulation of blood by virtue of the citrate ion’s ability to chelate ionized calcium present in the blood to form a non-ionized calcium-citrate complex.


Our Acid Citrate Dextrose (ACD) Solution A is supplied as a high quality, 0.22µm filter sterilized ready to use solution, packaged in sterile bottles for use as an anticoagulant in research studies only.



  • Acid-Citrate-Dextrose solution (ACD) is used for dilution of blood for haematological studies.
