Coagulation

Process of blood clotting by converting from liquid to semi-fluid.

Coagulation

Coagulation (clotting) is the process by which blood changes from a liquid to a gel. It potentially results in hemostasis, the cessation of blood loss from a damaged vessel, followed by repair. The mechanism of coagulation involves activation, adhesion, and aggregation of platelets along with deposition and maturation of fibrin. Disorders of coagu...

Coagulation

Coagulation and coalescence are both words that are used to describe what happens when small particles in a dispersion combine together to form large ones. One example is what happens to milk (a nice disperse emulsion) if it is leftat the back of the fridge too long. Coagulation is used when the particles that are combining are more or less solids,...
