CytoSMART sponsors Dicty World Race

In case you have a cut or wound, neutrophils (a type of white blood cells) migrate to the wound to protect the body against the invading bacteria by engulfing them. Neutrophils not only protect against bacterial infection, but also against fungal or viral infections. In case neutrophil migration is impaired, it is likely that the infection cannot be resolved in time. This could eventually lead to sepsis, a global inflammation caused by the infection. Sepsis can be fatal if not treated in time. The worldwide incidence of sepsis and septic shock (very severe sepsis) is estimated to be 18 million cases per year, of which more than 25% of thefalse

Open vs Closed Automated Cell Counters

Manual cell counting is often time-consuming and prone to error, particularly if the researcher is dealing with large sample sizes. Human perception of cell definition as well as dilution and pipetting errors are common pitfalls in manual cell counting. Although manual counting provides an initially lower start-up cost, the time spent counting the cells as well as the errors made in the process can give rise to greater long-term labor-associated costs.

Want to improve cell counting? Use our template!

Do you remember your first time counting cells? I’m assuming you made no mistake and did everything correct from the start. You never made a miscalculation after counting your cells and always added the right amount of medium for the cells to survive… right? Well, I’ll be honest, I made mistakes but I learned from them. And that’s how we all get better. We all made some mistake whilst learning proper cell culture handling and we all mastered it, right?

Manual vs. automated counting, is there a great devide?

Before deciding between automated or manual counting, start with defining what cells are to be counted. Only when it is clear what you want to count and in what quantity, you can properly evaluate setups which are available to you.
