In our lab we isolate cells from a cancer tissue, now in passage 5, but when I count the cells with a hemocytometer I count about half million of total cells in a CONFLUENT T 75! I thing is few cells (sorry for my english). When I saw the cells in a microscope, they are big , could be it a explication for the poor count?
how many cells did you count in your labs?
thanks a lot!
How many cells do you have in a confluent T 75 flask?

That is a fairly low number of cells. For a standard size cell, you should get around 1x107 cells. What sort of cells are you growing out as yours seem extremely large which makes me think that they are probably entering senescence and won't grow any further?
