Last week we hosted a webinar with blood viscosity expert, Dr. Gregory Sloop. Blood viscosity is quite underrated according to Dr. Gregory Sloop, the Associate Professor of Pathology at Idaho College of Osteopathic Medicine. This webinar focused on the importance of measuring blood viscosity when it comes to multiple health conditions including diabetes and cardiovascular disease as well as the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic. The recording and presentation slides from Dr. Sloop's presentation are ready to access via the download button at the bottom of this page!
RheoSense, Inc. (San Ramon, CA) – Hemodynamics is the study of fluid dynamics in blood flow. Characterizing and understanding flow behavior is key in diagnostics and treatment of blood related conditions. Viscosity is possibly the most important parameter to characterize the different phenomena observed in blood flow.
Oursmall sample viscometer, microVISC™, has been successfully validated for measuring serum viscosity in a clinical setting. It is essential to measure serum viscosity to analyze Hyperviscosity Syndrome (HVS).
