Effects of channel surface finish on blood flow in microfluidic devices

Abstract:

The behaviour of blood flow in relation to microchannel surface roughness has been investigated. Special attention was focused on the techniques used to fabricate the microchannels and on the apparent viscosity of the blood as it flowed through these microchannels. For the experimental comparison of smooth and rough surface channels, each channel was designed to be 10 mm long and rectangular in cross-section with aspect ratios of ≥ 100:1 for channel heights of 50 and 100 μm. Polycarbonate was...
