Why Lorrca Deformability

to measure deformability of Red Blood Cells in shear stress, during an osmolarity gradient.

To measure deformability as a function of shear stress.

For blood analysis, the deformability test assesses:

  • The quality of the RBC
  • Analysis of phenotypic RBC behavior
  • Analysis of Hereditary and Aquired Anemias
  • Status of RBC function in Malaria, PNH and infection
  • RBC membrane disorders
