Webinar: Blood Viscosity


The viscosity of blood influences at least three variables: its ability to clot, perfuse tissue, and vascular resistance.  An abnormally high blood viscosity can be an indicator of underlying health issues and a predictor of adverse events such as the following:

  • increased likelihood of thrombosis and risk of stroke - COVID 19
  • decreased ability to permeate muscle tissue resulting in inefficient glucose exchange - Diabetes
  • increased vascular resistance which accelerates aging and elevates blood pressure

How to Apply the Correction for non-Newtonian

The vast majority of fluids in the world exhibit non-Newtonian behavior. So, knowing how to measure, correct, and handle non-Newtonian rheological data is vital for performing accurate and repeatable experiments and data analysis.

This application note will step through the commonly used Weissenberg-Rabinowitsch-Mooney (WRM) shear rate correction for non-Newtonian fluids, that way future experiments and data analysis can be done with peace of mind!

Fragrances - Low Viscosity Fluids

We have released a new application note on low viscosity fluids specifically by using an assortment of colognes.

Viscosity data for different colognes were obtained using microVISC™. Over the shear rates explored, 200 to 5,100 1/s, the colognes exhibited Newtonian behavior.

The viscosity of these colognes was found to be between 1.72 and 2.12 mPa-s. The primary ingredient was alcohol, but there were still up to a 20 % difference in the viscosity between the highest and lowest viscosity samples.

This result shows that formulations with similar base ingredients can still have a wide range of viscosities based on the other components of the formulation.
