Hemolysis is the rupture of red blood cells when water enters the cell due to osmosis (Crawford). Osmosis is the movement of water from a higher water concentration to a lower water concentration. Thus, hemolysis will occur when a red blood cell is placed in a hypotonic medium, a medium that has a higher water concentration relative to that of the cytosol (Kimball). …
