Speed of neutrophil in a tube (in vitro)

Value 0.15 μm/sec Range: ±0.03 μm/sec
Organism Human Homo sapiens
Reference Vereycken et al., The Linear Motor in the Human Neutrophil Migration, J. Phys. III France 5 (1995) 1469-1480 link p.1469 abstract
Method "The kinematics and dynamics of human neutrophils in a narrow glass tube (4.9µm to 6.3µm in diameter) have been investigated both experimentally and theoretically. Cells were activated by the tri-peptide (fMLP) to migrate through a tube with a mean speed of 0.15±0.03µm/s (54 activated cells)."
