Quantifying local characteristics of velocity, aggregation and hematocrit of human erythrocytes in a microchannel flow.

Abstract

The effect of erythrocyte aggregation on blood viscosity and microcirculatory flow is a poorly understood area of haemodynamics, especially with relevance to serious pathological conditions. Advances in microfluidics have made it possible to study the details of blood flow in the microscale, however, important issues such as the relationship between the… (More)
