An investigation of the influence of an evanescent wave on the dynamics of motion of erythrocytes in blood plasma is presented. Computer simulation of erythrocytes moving in an evanescent field and experimental demonstration of the forecasted motion substantiate the possibility for control of position of red blood cells in a solution. The range of velocities of transversal motion of erythrocytes due to the action of the optical force of the generated evanescent field is determined as a function of the angle of illumination of a cell by a linearly polarized wave with the azimuth of polarization 45 deg.
