The role of calcium in the interfacial reactions occurring during the early phases of blood contact with glass surfaces has been studied using a rheologic technique that permits enumeration of adherent platelets as well as ultrastructural visualization of the blood-glass interface by both transmission and scanning electron microscopy . In the presence of calcium, platelets adhere to the glass surface at a rapid rate. Within 4 minutes, most of the adherent platelets have lost their normal… CONTINUE READING
