Description of the research topic:
Hemorheology concerns both the global flow properties of blood and the unique properties of certain components. Ektacytometry is used to describe erythrocyte deformability. It measures the extent of deformation that various known stresses cause to cells. Results are not only affected by the physical properties of the intact cells but may be biased by changes due to manipulation with the cells and measurement circumstances as well. The study aims to uncover methodical pitfalls. We aim to set up measurement standards where bias of results is minimal. We also seek transformation methods to make results of measurements performed among different circumstances comparable.
