Method Raman spectra of cells and nuclei from cultures in the plateau (nonproliferating) and exponential (proliferating) phases of growth were measured and show that Raman spectroscopy can monitor changes due to cell proliferation.
Comments Value is the weighted arithmetic mean of 13 measurements of intact nuclei in table. Cells in the plateau growth state that is in the G2 portion of the cell cycle
