I found this explanation:
"What does that mean and what caused that to happen? Hemolysis refers to the destruction of red blood cells which leads to the release of haemoglobin from within the cells. Hemolysis affects specimen quality and, consequently, can affect the results for certain laboratory tests." it can happen due to specimen collection, processing, or transport - see below.
"Hemolysis is a common occurrence in blood specimens which may compromise laboratory test results. Hemolysis may be due to specimen collection, processing, or transport. Hemolysis may also be due to pathological conditions, such as immune reactions, infections, medications, toxins and poisons, and therapeutic procedures."www.calgarylabservices.com/lab-services-guide/specimen-collection/hemolysis.aspx/www.healthcare.uiowa.edu/path_handbook/lab_bulletins/archived/j2009/hembloodspeciemns.html
Carol - maybe you should have a 'redo' and see what happens the second time.
