The Lorrca ektacytometer

The Laser-assisted Rotational Red Cell Analyser (Lorrca) measures the deformability (changes in elongation) and RBC aggregation & dis-aggregation.

The Lorrca contains the Osmoscan, to measure and visualize RBC elongation in shear stress in an osmolality gradient.

Mid 2018 the Lorrca is enhanced with the Oxygenscan (as ‘add-on’), to measure and visualize RBC elongation in shear stress in an oxygen gradient, during deoxygenation and re-oxygenation.
