the only problems I have had relate to airlocks in the vacuum line,
sludge in the system,  or clogs in the probe.  I use a Coulter to count
fixed pombe cells, usually to determine increase in cell number either
when following an elutriated sample, or after imposition of a cell cycle
block to find out where the block occurs etc.  Quite standard
