question about G418 sceening test

... trying to determine a threshold concentration for G418 screening of stable transfected cells (Huh-7). I start with a T25 flask of Huh-7 about 80% confluence, and passed it to a 6 well plate, each is about 15% confluence. After 24hr incubation with 2 mL regular DMEM, I changed to DMEM with G418 ...

C2C12 Confluence

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the approximate number of cells I should be getting in my cell count just before cells are reaching confluence (70-80%). We take the number of cells counted with the cell counter and multiply by 15 mL because that is what it is suspended in.

Bacteria and disinfectants

... wrong, in spite of what your teacher told you. Bacteriostatic or bactericidic do not change the result: once the colonies have grown in a lawn (to confluence), you won't see a difference if they die (they usually do not melt away, the walls are still there) or if they simply stop growing... or ...
