An improved Neubauer haemocytometer
was used to count the total WBC's in the BF's.
Platelets count was done through Haemocytometer
method (Kolmer et al.
Intensity of infection (cysts/g of faeces) can be determined through light microscopy by cyst concentration procedures, followed by quantification using a haemocytometer
4%) stain in haemocytometer
and density of live cells were determined.
Similarly the spore count was determined from fresh broth after suitable dilution in a haemocytometer
The algae were harvested after 8-10 days, allowed to sediment in a refrigerator for 24h, decanted and the density was estimated using a Neubauer haemocytometer
The number of cells was counted with trypan blue in a haemocytometer
prior to each passage, and they were seeded again in a 1:2 ratio.
The tube was vortexed for 2-3 min to dislodge conidia from the insect and the concentration of conidia was determined using a haemocytometer
The cells were counted in a haemocytometer
at 400X magnification.
The number of conidia in the suspension was counted with a haemocytometer
, adjusted to (8 x [10.
Tumor viability was determined by Trypan blue exclusion test and cells were counted using Haemocytometer
Pollen grains were counted using a haemocytometer
following Lloyd (1965).
