Figure 10: Microscopic details of blood samples passing through individual micro-channel arrays of the micro-channel array flow analyzer (MC-FAN), redrawn from Sugawara et al. [33]. (a) View of a temperature-untreated sample with a transit time = 12.6 s and transit sample volume = 25 μL. (b) Identical temperature-untreated with a transit time = 27.8 s and transit sample volume = 50 μL; (c) View of an identical blood sample to that in (a) and (b) but subjected to mild heating at 45°C for 30 min prior to application to MC-FAN with a transit time = 120.7 s and transit sample volume = 30 μL.
