      I have not personally made any artificial red blood cells but some other scientists in Scotland have tried to do this and soon there should be some artificial red blood cells to give to patients. How exactly they have been able to do this is amazing and I don’t exactly how it was done but I can imagine that, like all other discoveries, it must have taken many years to do!
