Hematocrit Effect on Viscosity of Erythrocyte Suspension in a Capillary Viscosimeter at Small Sizes of Capillaries
Keywords:erythrocyte suspension, hematocrit, slot capillary, viscosity
Results of experimental study of dependency of erythrocyte suspension viscosity on hematocrit using the capillary vicosimeter with capillaries in a form of flat slot channels of small slot height are presented. When using capillaries with a slot height less than 7 Î¼m the viscosity dependency on hematocrit was shown to have a distinctly manifested minimum at 2.5Ã·5% hematocrit. At the same time if using capillaries with slot height more than 11 Î¼m the dependency of viscosity on hematocrit is of the character, close to the linear one.
