Sphere Fluidics, UCL and Imperial College Publish Microfluidics Paper on Blood Flow Analysis

Dr David Holmes (a Principal Engineer at Sphere Fluidics) and collaborators at University College London and Imperial College have recently published a paper in the online jounal PLOS ONE. Dr Holmes commented: “The work uses microfluidic devices and image analysis methods to highlight the importance of considering local haematocrit distributions in the analysis of blood flow. The experimental approaches developed in this work provide a foundation for further examining the characteristics of microhaemodynamics, and could lead to more accurate computational models of blood flow in microvascular networks.” The tile of the paper is: “Spatial Distributions of Red Blood Cells Significantly Alter Local Haemodynamics.” The article was published in PLOS ONE, info here.
