Method P.279 bottom paragraph: "Cell volumes were determined by microscopic measurement of the diameters of the spherical cells resulting from mild trypsinization. Living cells were employed in all these determinations, and measurements were repeated on at least 20 different cells of each type. The mean and standard deviation of each type of measurement is presented in Table I." For growth conditions see bottom of p.273 and top of p.274.
Comments Volume for cells in human serum. Volume of cell in porcine serum was 5,000±1,900µm^3. See BNID 103719, 103725
