It's the other way around, they took out the blood, centrifuged it to take out the red blood cells and then reinfused the plasma immediately. to the red blood cells they added glycerol so it could be stored at low temps for a long time.python said:that passage appears to refer to what fuentes called 'siberia' according to tyler, - the most sophisticated and expensive blood doping technique at the time.
what time frame was ras referring to ? same as tyler about (2006?) does he confirm actually using it and does he specify how many bags he'd use in one grand tour ?
the interesting difference btwn fuentes's siberia and what ras described appears the use of plasma. fuentes was freezing it whereas ras said they'd re-infuse it immediately.
imo, freezing plasma was one half step ahead in doping sophistication.
