Quantitative assessment of dynamic deformability and adhesion of red blood cells possible

A team of researchers from the Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) in Cleveland, OH have developed a versatile microfluidic platform integrated with a cell dimensioning algorithm for quantitative assessment of dynamic deformability and adhesion of RBCs in controlled microphysiological flow.
