Abstract

We propose a new experimental technique for red blood cell thermal

cell membrane elastic moduli. The method is based on the comparison

contours as observed using phase contrast microscopy to the equivalent

dynamics simulation. The simulation is based on a network of virtual

angle potential and are subject to a constant volume and area constraints,

and shear elastic moduli. Using this method, the elastic properties

be easily monitored in response to changing environmental conditions

We also present evidence of increased bending rigidity in red blood

cells from diabetic individuals.
