Cell Plating Calculator

Cell Plating Calculator

Axion’s Cell Plating Calculator is used to calculate the final dilution volume of your cell suspension for a variety of cell plating conditions.

With the online calculator, enter your cell count and initial suspension volume. Add your target plating conditions. Select if you would like to prepare aliquots using a single stock method, where each aliquot is made from the same starting stock, or a serial dilution method, where each aliquot is diluted from the previous aliquot.

The Results, will show the final volume to dilute or concentrate your sample to achieve the highest density in your target conditions. As well as quantify the number of cells needed to ensure you have enough for your experiment. The dilution table shows how to prepare each aliquot.
