Re: grids for cell counting
|From:||Greg Dobbin <dobbin@Upei.CA>|
What about using an ocular on the microscope that has the grid in
the ocular? I found one on a scope in the morphometry suite.
10 x10 squares on 10x or scanning should give you about the area
you are looking for. You didn't say if the cells were fixed on the
slide, but if not, what about a hemocytometer for counting cells per
volume. Just few thoughts. Greg
