Abstract. We introduce a novel approach for determination of volume and shape of individual blood platelets modeled as an oblate spheroid from angle-resolved light scattering with flow-cytometric technique. The light-scattering profiles (LSPs) of individual platelets were measured with the scanning flow cytometer and the platelet characteristics were determined from the solution of the inverse light-scattering problem using the precomputed database of theoretical LSPs. We revealed a phenomenon… Expand
Blood platelet quantification by light scattering: from morphology to activation.
TLDR
A novel approach to the analysis of platelets allows the determination of 21 parameters relating to their content, morphology and dose-dependent activation. Expand
Fluorescence‐free flow cytometry for measurement of shape index distribution of resting, partially activated, and fully activated platelets
TLDR
An algorithm is developed, based on fitting PSID by a sum of three peak functions, to determine the percentage, mean platelet shape index, and distribution width of each platelet fraction, which gives eight additional parameters of platelet morphology and function to be used in clinical hematological analysis.

Mature red blood cells: from optical model to inverse light-scattering problem.
TLDR
A RBC shape model is considered, corresponding to the minimal bending energy of the membrane with isotropic elasticity, and an analytical approximation is constructed, which allows rapid simulation of the shape, given the diameter and minimal and maximal thicknesses. Expand
A physical model of blood platelets shape and its effect on light scattering
Quantitative description of blood platelet shape and its dramatic change during activation is necessary for the correct interpretation of light-scattering data, routinely measured in diagnosticExpand
Additivity of light-scattering patterns of aggregated biological particles
TLDR
A systematic simulation of light scattering by dimers and larger aggregates of blood platelets, each modeled as oblate spheroids, using the discrete dipole approximation showed that the multiple scattering between constituent particles can be neglected. Expand
Super‐resolved calibration‐free flow cytometric characterization of platelets and cell‐derived microparticles in platelet‐rich plasma
TLDR
The developed method provides instrument‐independent quantitative information on MPs, which can be used in studies of various factors affecting MP population, and provides unprecedented precision in determination of size and RI of individual spherical MPs. Expand
Light-scattering gating and characterization of plasma microparticles
TLDR
The Mie theory was used to accurately evaluate instrument detection limits; construct FSC/SSC gates for MPs in absolute scales of size and refractive index; and determine size and RI of individual spherical MPs. Expand
Method for the simulation of blood platelet shape and its evolution during activation
We present a simple physically based quantitative model of blood platelet shape and its evolution during agonist-induced activation. The model is based on the consideration of two major cytoskeletalExpand
Optical uncaging of ADP reveals the early calcium dynamics in single, freely moving platelets.
TLDR
The use of photolabile "caged" analog of ADP allows one to track the very early stage of platelet activation in single, freely moving cells and proposes a simple model function for calcium peaks, which is in good agreement with the measured data. Expand
Advanced consumable‐free morphological analysis of intact red blood cells by a compact scanning flow cytometer
TLDR
The results confirm the possibility of precise, label‐free, enhanced morphological analysis of individual intact RBCs with compact single‐detector flow cytometer and can be used to increase the value of screening examinations and to reveal pathologies accompanied by abnormality of RBC shape. Expand

Determination of volume, shape and refractive index of individual blood platelets
Light scattering patterns (LSP) of blood platelets were theoretically and experimentally analyzed. We used spicular spheroids as a model for the platelets with pseudopodia. The discrete dipoleExpand
Light-scattering flow cytometry for identification and characterization of blood microparticles.

This work describes a novel approach to study blood microparticles using the scanning flow cytometer, which measures light scattering patterns (LSPs) of individual particles, and employed a deconvolution algorithm to determine size and refractive index distributions of the whole population ofmicroparticles.

Turbidometric evaluations of platelet activation: relative contributions of measured shape change, volume, and early aggregation.
TLDR
It is shown that platelet aggregation occurring on this early time scale does not contribute to the initial changes in %T, and it is suggested that at early times, changes in platelet refractive index produce significant decreases in%T which are on average offset by comparable increases due to the early volume increase, whereas at later times pseudopod formation has an important influence on %T.

Geometry of normal mammalian platelets by quantitative microscopic studies.
TLDR
The shape distributions of normal and hardened human and rabbit erythrocytes and platelets were obtained for edge-on orientations of a few hundred freely rotating cells from analyses of microphotographs obtained similarly as by Ponder (1930), with the best model for platelets appearing to be an oblate spheroid.

It is concluded that a reduction in MPC as measured by the ADVIA 120 may be used to detect anticoagulant induced, as well as thrombin stimulated, in vitro platelet activation in blood antICOagulated with EDTA. Expand
Platelet size in man.
TLDR
The proposed thesis that platelet size heterogeneity results mainly from aging in the circulation was contradicted by size distributions of age-homogeneous, newly-born cell populations which were lognormal with increased (instead of decreased) dispersion of volumes and the macrothrombocytosis found in some populations with normal age distribution.

Quantification of the morphological reaction of platelets to aggregating agents and of its reversal by aggregation inhibitors.
TLDR
The optical effects produced by calcium or its chelators were unusual in that the changes in transmitted and horizontally scattered light were in opposite directions (transmitted light decreased, scattered light increased) whereas, in all other circumstances so far examined, these changes were in the same direction.
