Erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) is a physical parameter, often used in routine health checks and medical diagnosis. A theoretical model that allows to extract physically-meaningful parameters from the whole sedimentation curve, based on modern colloidal knowledge, has recently been developed. Here, we present a protocol to automatically collect the ESR over time, and extract the parameters of this recent model from this automated data collection. These refined parameters are also likely to improve the medical testimony.
