The influence of cellular morphology on the rheological behaviour of human red blood cells (RBC) and RBC suspensions has been examined for both fresh and ATP-depleted erythrocytes. Macrorheological measurements were made using a cone-plate viscometer and microrheological measurements included cell deformation by high-speed centrifugation and direct microscopic observation using a counter-rotating rheoscope. Evaluation of the experimental observations indicates the importance of RBC shape as a… CONTINUE READING
