Integrated microfluidic viscometer equipped with fluid temperature controller for measurement of viscosity in complex fluids
In the study described herein, a microfluidic viscometer equipped with fluid temperature controller is proposed for measuring the viscosity of complex liquids containing cells or particles. The… Expand
Changes in velocity profile according to blood viscosity in a microchannel.
Red blood cells (RBCs) are important to dictate hemorheological properties of blood. The shear-thinning effect of blood is mainly attributed to the characteristics of the RBCs. Variations in… Expand
Experimental investigation of pulsatility effect on the deformability and hemolysis of blood cells.
In this study, we investigated the differences between pulsatile cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB) procedure and nonpulsatile CPB procedure in terms of their effects on hemolysis and deformability of red… Expand
Deformability measurement of red blood cells using a microfluidic channel array and an air cavity in a driving syringe with high throughput and precise detection of subpopulations.
Red blood cell (RBC) deformability has been considered a potential biomarker for monitoring pathological disorders. High throughput and detection of subpopulations in RBCs are essential in the… Expand
Fluidic low pass filter for hydrodynamic flow stabilization in microfluidic environments.
Fluctuations in flow rate invariably occur in microfluidic devices. This fluidic instability results in a deteriorating performance and the suspension of their unique functions occasionally. In this… Expand
Microfluidic-based measurement of erythrocyte sedimentation rate for biophysical assessment of blood in an in vivo malaria-infected mouse.
This study suggests a new erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) measurement method for the biophysical assessment of blood by using a microfluidic device. For an effective ESR measurement, a… Expand
