Paper Abstract

Samples of erythrocytes of different ABO groups, diluted in normal saline, were irradiated with high concentrated low power He-Ne Laser beam during 30 minutes. By microscopic observations made every 5 minutes the crenation time history of the irradiated red cells were determined. Assuming the crenation to have two sequential steps, experimental data of the rate constants for each of two steps of each blood sample were calculated. All these parameters and crenation-time history curves appear different and characteristic for each group of ABO-System. Further work to verify detected sensibility changes in inmunohematological reactions with Laser treated red blood cells is under progress.
