Title: PROCESS FOR CHARACTERIZING A BLOOD SAMPLE
Abstract:
The present invention relates to a process for characterizing a blood sample, comprising: insertion, into a channel, of a solution comprising blood platelets, said channel comprising an inlet and an outlet, the solution being inserted via the inlet of the channel; creating a pressure difference between the inlet and the outlet of the channel so as to cause the solution to progress from the inlet towards the outlet of the channel; passage of the solution into a measurement zone of the channel, provided with electrodes; measurement, by said electrodes and measurement means, of an electric signal while said electrodes are covered by the solution in the channel, characterized in that the progression of the solution from the inlet towards the outlet of the channel comprises a progression of a front between, on the one hand, the solution extending from the front towards the inlet of the channel and, on the other hand, a gas extending from the front towards the outlet of the channel.
