Quantification of Cells in Culture
Cell enumeration using the hemocytometer is applicable when determining the number of cells in a suspension and when the number of samples to be analyzed is relatively small. Hemocytometry is also useful for determining the proportion of singly dispersed cells in a suspension and an estimation of the frequency of viable cells.
