Clinical Validation of a Blood Filtration Element for Plasma Separation at the Point of Care
In this contribution we present our work on filtration of plasma from whole blood in a polymer-based microfluidic system. The absorption of pathogens was found to be low; therefore our system is valid for clinical trials. The blood filtration element is capable of extracting 8–15μL volume of plasma from 100μL of whole blood in 7 minutes.
