Method P.156 right column bottom paragraph: "A method is presented by which the density of individual yeast cells can be calculated by the use of Stokes' law for falling spheres through a viscous fluid. From density measurements the weights of the respective individuals cells can be computed. A high degree of accuracy of the method is revealed by correlation studies of weights and volumes computed independently from experimental data."
Comments In 'Range' is standard deviation
