What does "dropwise"mean? - (Dec/07/2009 )

Hello, this may sound silly but I am a newcomer to working in a lab. I was reading a protocol for cell culture and it said to "slowly, dropwise pipette cells into pre warmed growth medium." What does this mean?

Thanks!

Using a pipette, slowly add the cells drop-by-drop into pre-warmed growth medum.
