The aligning, fixing and visualization investigation results of bioobjects such as blood cells erythrocytes are presented in the current paper. Both the improved relief on the modified liquid crystal cells interfaces and the intermolecular charge transfer complex influence have been considered. The photomicrography that shows the erythrocytes aligning area has been presented. The possible quantitative bio-objects aligning mechanisms in the liquid crystals have been discussed. It has been established that the obtained data have coincided with the one shown in the previous publications when the polymer orienting layers were used.

Keywords: bioobjects, erythrocytes, liquid crystals, carbon nanotubes, visualization, aligning, intermolecular charge transfer complex, surface relief
