Project Summary

The purpose of this project is to study the interaction between human blood and the microbeads. This is a continuation from a previously done project. There is an addition of a proper design component as well as fixing the errors which occurred in previous research to produce more precise results. Also, updating the microbead itself. The microbead will have a magnetic coating. The microscope slide which the bead will be sitting on will have a simple magnetic washer which hold the bead, preventing movement. The design component will be creating a 1 mm thick microscope slide chamber in which the magnetic microbeads are located. Then, the blood is injected into the chamber and the blood will form a clot. Then, the slide is directly place under the microscope.
