The possibility of diagnostics of the composition and state of blood in a cuvette with plane-parallel walls by the polarization characteristics of the scattered laser radiation has been revealed. It has been established experimentally that the use of λ = 0,63 μm laser radiation linearly polarized in the plane of incidence under certain conditions of probing and observation makes it possible to minimize the distortion of the parameters of the radiation scattered by the sample in the cuvette by its boundaries. We have found the range of recording angles, which provides the widest interval of changing the degree of polarization characterized by the two first Stokes parameters of the radiation scattered by the blood in the case of changing its state.
