A pen counter for use in cell counting
A pen-counter system has been described which was found to be very useful for counting the number of muscle cells in the cross-section of narrow slips of the intercostal muscles. This system speeded up very drastically the whole counting procedure and made possible an extensive survey of the fibre densities in the intercostal muscles of dogs. It should also prove to be a convenient instrumental approach in all areas in which large numbers of small objects have to be counted.
