Paper Abstract

Double optical tweezers combined with active rheology approach are suggested for dynamic monitoring of the red blood cell elastic properties. Frequency dependence of the phase difference in the forced movement of the erythrocyte opposite edges appeared to be highly dependent on the rigidity of the cellular membrane. Cell relaxation time value is suggested as an effective parameter determining the state of the cell. Photo-induced effects caused by optical trapping are analyzed.
