Hemocytometer – where to start

The Hemocytometer blog is the place where you will find everything you need to know on cell counting with a hemocytometer (and some more).
If you’re new to this and you are looking for resources to start with, this is where you should go:

If you’re more advanced and you’re wondering what resources related to the hemocytometer you should be using, then head to the specific topics:

For more background on cell culture and where the hemocytometer steps in:

  • Cell culture: what it is and how is cell culture classified
  • Adherent cells: a brief explanation on how to deattach and subculture them
  • Suspension cells: when is the right time to change the medium and how to do it
  • Contamination: what types of other things can be growing in your culture that interfere with the cells you are growing

I hope you enjoy the blog! If you have any questions please feel free to leave a comment or send an email to biolabprotocols (at) gmail.com and I will reply asap.

I did my PhD in the Department of Chemical Engineering at Imperial College London. My research focused on mathematical modeling of the cell cycle in leukemia and involved experiments with cell lines. During that time, I had to count cells with a hemocytometer so often to track growth that I got tired and decided to build an app, HemocyTap, and share my knowledge on the topic here to help as many people as possible.
