Erythrocyte sedimentation rate

ESR, or erythrocyte sedimentation rate, is one of the oldest laboratory assays known to humankind. Despite its age, it’s still very popular due to its relative simplicity and low cost in monitoring the progress of certain illnesses, such as chronic inflammations. From the Dutch manufacturer RR Mechatronics, Triolab offers fully automated analysers that utilize the golden standard Westergren method for EDTA-blood-based ESR assays.
