How do you make a cell counter?
You can calculate your cell concentration using the following formula:
- Total cells/ml = (Total cells counted x Dilution factor x 10,000 cells/ml)/ Number of squares counted.
- Total cells/ml = (325 cells x 2 x 10,000 cells/ml)/ 5 = 130 x 104 cells/ml.
- Total cells in sample = 130 x 104 cells/ml x 5 ml = 650 x 104 cells.

What is 3 part cell counter?
The 3-part analyzer is able to differentiate between 3 types of WBC’s, neutrophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes. In a 3-part differential cell counter basophils and eosinophils cannot be differentiated and are grouped with population of either neutrophils or monocytes.
