This work deals with the problem of ultrasound in the context of biomedical and clinical applications. Ultrasonic waves can be used for the separation of cells in human blood. Under the influence of ultrasonic waves cells included in the liquid experience a certain characteristic displacement was referred to as drift. Presented work suggests that only radiation pressure should be taken into account as a mechanism of drifting in this situation. It has been demonstrated that the growth of cells concentration around the points of stable equilibrium is exponential. The time constant of this growth was estimated and the formulae which determine the time needed to obtain the assumed concentration increase have been derived. The theoretical studies of acoustic agglomeration of particles in the liquid have become a new focus in the ultrasonic research.
