Quantitative Detect of Fatigue of Membrane of Erythrocyte in Uniform Shear Field

Shigehiro Hashimoto

Volume 11, Issue 3 , March 2020, Pages 1-5

http://dx.doi.org/10.5185/amlett.2020.031485

Abstract
  An erythrocyte has high deformability. In the shear field, it deforms from biconcave disc to ellipsoid, and make tank-treading motion at the membrane. When the membrane is ruptured by fatigue, contents get out from the inside of the cell (hemolysis). At the fatigue test of the membrane in the shear field, ...  Read More
