Abstract : We have developed a new procedure for the dialysis method of determining erythrocyte fragility. Using a unique dialyzer cell (0.06 ml volume), this technic offers reduced cost, automation, multiple sample analysis, and micro volumes suitable for pediatrics and small animals. This technic also produces data suitable for data processing, storage, and retrieval and is more amenable to quality control formats.
