In this webinar we would cover the basics on whole blood, plasma and serum viscosity and the importance to hemodynamics (blood flow) and related clinical diagnosis applications. We will present the protocols required to test this kind of samples using VROC® (Viscometer/Rheometer-On-a-Chip) powered viscometers.
We demonstrate our technology capability to overcome some of the challenges encountered by conventional methods to measure viscosity when dealing with blood samples. Our instruments are able to characterize the viscosity of blood and its derivatives as a function of shear rate, temperature, vessel size and red blood cell content. If you want to learn more:
Even in California, winter can be a bit of a traumatic season. With the sun going down at 5 P.M. we got a bit of a vampire complex and decided to make February our month dedicated to the viscosity of blood and its derivatives. To go with our mood, we also published an application note on the viscosity of plasma and serum. However, this seemed a bit like decaf coffee to us. If you know the RheoSense crew, we love our coffee! Hence, we wanted to look at the real thing!
