Red blood cells are suspended in a 0.85% saline solution. Distilled water is added slowly. Immediately upon addition of distilled water, blood cells blow up entirely, or suffer tears in their cellular membranes, thereby creating perfectly round, empty cells which are free of hemoglobin. We call these "ghost" cells, and they are visible at the end of the video.
