French portable blood viscometer - medical equipment. This is a vintage French portable viscometer (or viscosimeter) used to measure the viscosity of blood. There are detailed instructions on its use, in French, and it appears to be in almost unused condition. There is a pack of glass tubes unopened and another 4 glass tubes. There are 2 unopened phials with stoppers that have Prolabo, Pyrex on. Also 2 bottles with screw caps.

The Viscometer itself has a tap with Vestale Breveté patent on. It is in a U shape. The instructions are titled Preciss No; 340. Méthode de Hess-Martinet pour mesure de la viscosité sanguine.

The contents are in a black box - the viscometer is attached to the box. The clasps on the box are rusted but otherwise everything is in good condition. The box measures 10½ins (27cm) long, 3½ins (9cm) wide and 2½ins (7cm) high.

Viscosity is measured passing one fluid through another - in this case distilled water and blood.

This is a real collector's item - these instruments are impossible to find unless you want a new one!
