Measurement of characteristics of red blood cells deformability by means of laser diffractometry in a shear flow

We discuss the problem of measuring one of the important rheological parameters of blood - red blood cell deformability distribution. We introduce new algorithms for measuring parameters of this distribution based on the method of laser diffractometry of erythrocytes in a shear flow (ektacytometry)
