In this paper, authors present a new simple method for ESR. The method employs capillary tube, which requires a small amount of blood (180µl). The present capillary method was compared to Westergren method and statistically found to have no significant difference. Hence this method is superior to that of Westegren method, as the advantage being using a small amount of blood from finger prick for this capillary method.
