The dielectric properties of normal erythrocytes were compared to those of cells infected with the malarial parasitePlasmodium falciparum . Normal cells provided stable electrorotation spectra which, when analyzed by a single-shelled oblate spehroid dielectric model, gave a specific capacitance value of 12 ± 1.2 mF/m 2 for the plasma membrane, a cytoplasmic permittivity of 57 ± 5.4 and a...
