(a) binconcave RBC spreading. (b) “sphered” RBC spreading. From left to right: no contact at , early contact at , approximately the cross-over between the two regimes at and the fully spread cell at . The biconcave RBC has approximately 40% less volume than the osmotically swollen spherical red blood cell. For movies corresponding to these snapshots, see supplementary Videos S1 and S2.
