Optical sensing of red blood cell dynamics

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Human red blood cell membrane (RBC) has remarkable deformability, which is crucial for its oxygen transportation in the blood circulatory system. This deformability of the RBC membrane can be altered by several patho-physiological conditions. Here we present recent development of optical imaging techniques to measure dynamic fluctuations in the RBC membrane, from which RBC membrane mechanical properties are probed non-invasively.
