Suspensions of erythrocytes in media of low conductivity are subjected to homogenous high frequency electric fields (1 MHz, approximately 10 to 40 kV/m). The resulting transient deformation of the cells is measured by laser light diffraction. Employing a viscoelastic model of the erythrocyte membrane, relative values of membrane shear modulus and response time can currently be determined to within 7% or better. With a measurement time of one minute the average values of some 10(5) cells can be… CONTINUE READING
