We describe two optical methods for in vitro drug trials on living cells and cell cultures. Response of each single target cell to drug impact is measured as the change of cell functional and structural state by photothermal imaging and the changes of cell viability is controlled with Laser Viability Test. Both photothermal methods are sensitive to specific cell reaction but although to reaction of general origin. High sensitivity of the methods allows to use minor amounts of drug and cell materials. Pharmaceutical applications are illustrated with the results of in vitro experiments being obtained for human living blood cells.
