In this paper we investigate the capabilities of different light scattering programs for light scattering simulation of the single human red blood cell, also known as erythrocyte. Knowledge of the scattering properties can help to solve the inverse problem of classifying erythrocytes according to size and shape using measured scattering diagrams. We compare the different programs by presenting the corresponding scattering diagrams. Then we give an overview of computation times and point out the different characteristics of the methods.
