As a phantom of native blood capillary the plastic capillary tube and as a model of red blood cells the yeast cells are considered. Plastic capillary has circular a cross-section with diameter ranging between 20 and 40 μ. For velocity estimation of polystyrene beads which had a role of tracers in water the particle image velocimetry method is realized using NI Labview Vision standard functions of image processing. It is shown that in spite of the presence of uncompensated spherical aberration emerging from refraction incident beam in curved plastic capillary walls yeast cells can be confined in stable 3D trap.
