In the present study, the effects of 2000,4000,6000, 8000 rad doses of gamma rays used in the irradiation of blood components before blood transfusion were investigated in the autoanalyser. As for resultsi dose dependent decreases were observed in glucose and cholesterol levels and dose dependent increase was observed in potassium level. Some changes were also observed in the other parameters but all correlations were found to be statistically insignificant.

Following the irradiation procedure, the decreases observed in blood viscosity values measured with the cone/plate viscometer were found to be statistically insignificant, whereas the decreases observed in plasma viscosity values for the 4000, 8000 rad irradiated groups were statistically significant.

Regarding the measurements with Harkness Viscometer, the decreases observed in plasma viscosity values for 6000-8000 rad irradiated groups statistically significant. Keywords :
