A new approach to the investigation of microaggregate formation kinetics in platelet suspension is described. The method is based on the analysis of light transmission fluctuations produced by the changes in the number of platelets in optical channel. The relative dispersion of such fluctuations (D) was used as a parameter to estimate the degree of platelet aggregation and to analyze the aggregation kinetics. It was found that a continuous recording of this parameter allows to detect… CONTINUE READING
