  • TITLE: Effect of static magnetic field on erythrocytes characterizations

    AUTHORS: Mohamed A. Elblbesy

    KEYWORDS: Static Magnetic Field; Erythrocytes; Surface Area; Shericity, Adhesion

    JOURNAL NAME: Journal of Biomedical Science and Engineering, Vol.3 No.3, April 9, 2010

    ABSTRACT: The interaction of static magnetic field (SMF) with living organisms is a rapidly growing field of investigation. Recently, exposure to moderate intensity SMFs (1 mT – 1 T) has attracted much attention for its various medical applications. This study was designed to show the microscopic effect of SMF on erythrocytes in vitro. For this purpose SMF system was constructed in my lab on basis of the idea of cell tracking velocimetry system. The changes in erythrocytes surface area, sphericity, and adhesion number for erythrocytes were calculated to quantify the effect of SMF on erythrocytes characterizations. The results showed that SMF increased erythrocytes surface area and reduced their sphericity. The adhesion number of erythrocytes under the influence of SMF showed the tendency of erythrocytes to adhere with each other. These findings indicate that more study on microscopic scales must be carried out in order to investigate the effect of SMF on erythrocytes.
