Avoid the Pitfalls when Automating Cell Viability Counting for Biopharmaceutical Quality Control In this paper we show one example of how identifying viable cells by minimum diameter alone can introduce variability of circa 33% in the reported cell concentration. This paper describes how to avoid these common pitfalls when user is adopting a new automated method of cell counting.
