Paper Abstract

The blood sedimentation process is studied by means of the imaging system. This method allows to investigate the blood sediment behavior in whole sample. The blood was taken from healthy donors. From the normal and glutaraldehyde hardened erythrocytes the blood samples of three haematocrits (5%, 40%, 60%) in autologous plasma and dextran were prepared. Phases of the blood sediment that appear in the course of the process were recognized. We have shown that this method permits the analysis of traces of settling aggregates. Especially it is shown that the method can be useful in the study of the influence of cellular as well as plasmatic factors on erythrocyte aggregation and blood sedimentation.
