Cell confluency is a key parameter for all cell biologists, as it is the beginning of all other cell culture-related experiments, including transfection, cell-based assays, and cell culture-quality control. Accurate cell confluency calculations are important for obtaining maximum transfection efficiency and avoiding waste. Despite this, many cell biologists use subjective ways to estimate cell culture confluency. They look at the space covered by cells in a culture flask, or manually count a small aliquot of trypan blue-stained cells using a hemacytometer.
In this white paper from Bertin Technologies, learn how to use a cell imager system to:
Directly and accurately capture and calculate cell confluency
Use cell confluency data to determine cell migration rate
