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.In this application note we present how you measure blood viscosity using VROC® (Viscometer/Rheometer-On-a-Chip) powered viscometers. We demonstrate our technology's capability to overcome some of the challenges encountered by more conventional methods when dealing with blood samples. Our instruments are able to characterize blood plasma viscosity as a function of shear rate, temperature, vessel size and red blood cell content.
