microfluidic chip tests platelet health

microfluidic chip tests platelet health

How it works: A microfluidic device sends platelets to the gym to test how strong they are. When a strong platelet touches two microdots, it adheres to them and pulls them together, including against the resistance of gels of varying stiffness.
