    In my biology investigation my first aim is to investigate the effect of adding hyper, iso and hypotonic solutions to blood; I have acquired pig blood from my local butchers, although I can't seem to find anywhere that has instructions on how to synthesis said solutions.

    Can someone please include instructions of chemicals I require, and steps!
    Thank you.

    This seems like an odd independent investigation to run; I would have thought you would have been provided with 'blood' and any hyper, hypo or isotonic solutions you may need. But here goes:

    Hypertonic solution - can be any plain glucose solution with a concentration that exceeds 5%. For example, 10% dextrose in water, also known by its name D10W (i.e. this is often used as an IV fluid)
    Hypotonic solution - can be any plain glucose solution with a concentration lower than 5%.
    Isotonic solution - can be any plain glucose solution with a 5% concentration.

    Essentially, I am basing these concentrations on plasma osmolality.

    Hope this helps.
