Using a special laser installation allowing to control the conditions of a shear flow the initial stage of flow aggregation of two dispersed biological systems - diluted suspensions of human trombocytes and latex particles coated by meningococcus polysaccharide antibodies - was studied. Relationship between the variation of optical characteristics and the initial rate of suspension aggregation was stated. The experimental results have verified the proposed theoretical models of cells adhesive interactions in a flow.
