Method Primary source abstract: "Using both a micropipette technique and video light microscopy (LM) to measure the diameters of the spherical cells, [investigators] have accurately determined the volume of the human neutrophil."
Comments P.707 right column bottom paragraph: "The volume of cells varies considerably, from ≈ 0.5 fl (5×10^−4 pl) for a bacterial cell [refs 55, 56] to ≈ 40 fl (4×10^−2 pl) for yeast [ref 57], ≈ 90 fl (9×10^−2 pl) for human erythrocytes [ref 58 BNID 115152], 0.30 pl for human neutrophils [primary source], 1.76 pl for MCF-7 cells [ref 60 BNID 115154], and 6.2 pl for rat hepatocytes [ref 53 BNID 115150]."
