Abstract: Phase distribution detection of cells and tissues is concerned since it is an important auxiliary method for observing biological samples. High speed and large amount cell detection is needed for its high detecting efficiency. In this paper, we have proposed a simple large scale biological sample phase detection device called gravity driven high throughput phase detecting cytometer based on quantitative interferometric microscopy to obtain flowing red blood cells phase. The system could realize high throughput phase detecting and statistical analysis with high detecting speed and in real time. The statistical characteristics of red blood cells could be obtained which might be helpful for biological analysis and disease detection. We believe this method is a powerful tool to quantitatively measure the phase distribution of biological samples. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
