erythrocyte deformability

Improved Data Processing Algorithm for Laser Ektacytometry of Red Blood Cells

Background and Objectives: Red blood cells deliver oxygen to organs and tissues. In case of tropical malaria, blood anemia, diabetes mellitus and many other diseases, the cells become corrupted. These pathologies lead in altering deformability of the cells, i.e ability to change their shape under external forces. Precise measurement of cell’s deformability gives important medical information which helps to cure and monitor the most wide spread diseases more effectively.
