Effect of spectrin network elasticity on the shapes of erythrocyte doublets

<p>Red blood cells (RBCs) in plasma or polymer solution interact attractively to form various shapes of RBC doublets. A rich variety of doublet shapes is found, depending on membrane shear and bending elasticity, reduced volumes, and adhesion strength.</p>
