refinement of the method of calibration;
standardization of the treatment of the blood sample before measurement with regard to mixing and temperature;
automation of the measurement of viscosity by means of a computer program using the HP 9815S, with particular attention to the time factor during the measurement;
construction of curves in which the viscosity is plotted against the shear rate and time, so that the curves not only represent a particular value but can also be a qualitative reflection of the blood sample or of the measurement technique.
