Measurements of the viscosity of blood and plasmas at various temperatures and shear rates in Antarctic notothenioids, zoarcids, channichthyids and a New Zealand notothenioid
Entry ID: K012_1988_1989_NZ_1

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: The viscosity of blood and plasma was measured from the Antarctic notothenioids Pagothenia borchgrevinki, Trematomus bernacchii, T. centronotus and Dissostichus mawsoni, from the Antarctic zoarcid Rhigophila dearborni and from the New Zealand notothenioid Paranotothenia angustata. Viscosity was measured over a range of temperatures from -2C to +15C and a shear rate from 450/s down to 2.3/s. ... View entire text
