Abstract

We demonstrated that spiral microchannels could efficiently separate plasma from whole human blood toward autologous serum eye drop, which provides benefits for all dry eye patients. The optimized spiral microchannels realized 100% separation of 10 μm particles and over 90% separation of blood samples.
