Abstract
A newly developed system to determine red blood cell flexibility is presented. It combines ektacytometry (laser diffraction) with image analysis. Laser light is passed through erythrocyte suspensions which are sheared in a Cuette like viscosimeter. The laser diffraction patterns are photographed by a CCD camera, and further analyzed by a computer. Flexibility is characterized by the quotient of minor and major axes of isointensity lines of the elliptically transformed diffraction patterns. The variation coefficient of the measurement is less than 1%.
