Raman Institute Experts Create Device To Detect Alcohol Effect On RBC

To detect and decode the effects of prolonged alcohol exposure to red blood cells (RBC), scientists of Raman Research Institute (RRI) have developed a high-resolution platform to measure RBC size. The electro-fluid device was designed to detect shrinkage of RBCs upon alcohol exposure via enhanced resolution. Besides, it can be tuned for a point-of-care screening from several other blood-related conditions in the future. Relying on the… read-more
