New Clues to Blood Clotting
July 27, 2010
Scientists from the University of Chicago have developed a microfluidic system that was able to separately monitor blood clotting in both blood plasma and a chemical model. The researchers were even able to use the model to predict behavior that they later confirmed with human blood plasma, finding that blood can be exposed to significant amounts of clotting stimuli, such as tissue factor, without initiating clotting.
