Hello all,

I was wondering if anybody knows a method to determine the number cells
growing in a 96 well plate. Something like measuring the turbidity
(absorbance) or refringence, other than actually count them. I don't
have access to a cell counter, and I don't want to spend hours counting
them below the microscope well by well.

Any help would be appreciated.
