In this article we propose statistical method for comparison of simulation and real biological experiments of elastic objects moving in fluid. Our work is focused on future optimization of microfluidic devices used for capture of circulating tumor cells from blood samples. Since the design optimization using biological experiments is both time consuming and expensive, in silico experiments with a broad spectrum of complex and computationally simulations are intensely performed. Necessary verification if simulation models, hitherto mainly realised by comparision of individual cells properties must be extended to more complex simulations. We present our first results with characteristics designed for this purpose.
