Abstract:

The objective of the proposed research is to develop a portable, passive system for rapid and efficient blood component separation. While a number of macro-scale devices are routinely employed in laboratory settings to separate, for example, red blood cells (RBCs) from platelet-rich plasma (PRP), and an emerging class of microfabricated devices are slowly being developed to address various low-throughput, point-of-care applications, we propose a straightforward "mesoscopic" solution to reliably separate a unit of undiluted whole blood into RBCs, platelets, and plasma in under one hour.
