A major instigator of VOC is microvascular obstruction by pathologically stiffened sickle red blood cells (RBCs), and thus, therapy relies heavily on optimizing intravenous fluid(More)
The enrichment of viable cells is an essential step to obtain effective products for cell therapy.

We report a label-free(More)
