In this Reply, we use the data offered in the Comment by Markel [Phys. Rev. E. 72, 023401 (2005)] to investigate the electrorotation and dielectrophoretic spectra of dielectric particles such as biological cells discussed in our two papers [Phys. Rev. E. 65, 021401 (2002); 69, 051402 (2004)]. We find that the numerical results predicted by our method and Markel's method are in good agreement. Therefore, this further shows the validity of our approximation method for dielectric particles and that the Comment by Markel does not affect the significance of the two papers.
