Spreading of blood drops over dry porous substrate: complete wetting case.


HYPOTHESIS The process of dried blood spot sampling involves simultaneous spreading and penetration of blood into a porous filter paper with subsequent evaporation and drying. Spreading of small drops of blood, which is a non-Newtonian liquid, over a dry porous layer is investigated from both theoretical and experimental points of view. EXPERIMENTS AND… (More)
