Abstract

We newly found that Red Blood Cells (RBC) in micro-fluidic channel whose cross-sectional area is even smaller than their projection area change their transparency level dramatically depending upon loading time, which we call "Chameleon Effect" of RBC. We examined the "Chameleon Effect" precisely and showed that this effect strongly correlates with the dynamic behavior in the recovery characteristics after launching.
