Paper Abstract

Stochastic bending oscillations of cell membrane and deformations of erythrocytes by high frequency electric field are very promising phenomena for medical and environmental diagnostic applications. Experimental observations showed high sensitivity of these phenomena to variations of erythrocytes mechanical properties caused by physico-chemical factors and by pathological changes in the cell. However, for unambiguous interpretation of the measured dependencies, and for adequate relation of their changes to the alterations of particular mechanical parameters of erythrocytes, a comprehensive theoretical basis is required. This work present and discusses the fundamentals of the flicker spectroscopy and dielectro- deformational spectroscopy of erythrocytes in a view of possible diagnostics applications.
