The analysis of light reflection from or transmission through a blood sample under defined shearing conditions is widely used to assess red blood cell (RBC) aggregation. Different shearing geometries have been used to generate a constant shear rate within the blood sample, including "cone on plate" and Couette systems. In this study, a rotating glass plate, together with a parallel stationary plate, was used to generate a given shear rate at the point of light transmission measurement. The… CONTINUE READING
