Application Note: Monitoring Cell Growth in 2 µL Volumes Using a Microplate
17 January 2012

Accurate determination of cellular growth in culture is critical to many downstream processes to insure optimal growth is achieved and sufficient biomass is being produced. The diverse nature of cell types currently used in scientific processes requires a universal method for monitoring cell growth. A common and rapid method for determination of cell growth is the use of turbidimetry. In this application note a suitable method of performing micro-volume cell quantification for a variety of cell types from as little as 2 μL of cell culture using a microplate reader is described.
