I work with catfish serum and I find that more lysis of RBCs occur when the
fish are stressed. As far as handling the blood...it does seem that the more
you physically manipulate the RBCs the greater the lysis, so letting the
blood clot (if this ok with your experimental design) is a sound suggestion.
Good luck.
