The goal of this research is to characterize and optimize a continuous-flow, blood fractionation platform using particle image velocimetry to analyze the critical operating parameters. The microfluidic system will separate from a blood sample a platelet-enriched plasma containing pathogens and pathogenic biomarkers. It will also provide a stream of concentrated blood cells including pathogenic plasmodial cells.
