Canadian researchers have developed a microfluidic device to help study changes in red blood cells caused by the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum. The device, which measures the stiffness of red blood cells by squeezing them through constrictions shaped like funnels, could be used in the testing of drug candidates. The findings were published in the journal Lab on a Chip.
