I've been complaining a lot about counting ... and here's why:All the little black circles with white centres are the holes, and all the dark blue round smudges are cells. Yeah, I have to count ALL of those (this particular one had 476 cells). Luckily, this is pretty much as bad as it gets - some of the other treatments average around 100, 200 and 300 cells. And I'm using software to keep track of which cells I've counted, so it isn't like I have to remember that. All in all though, it takes an average of an hour of counting per slide. And I'm only half way there...
Oh yeah - and this is a someone nice photo - the vaste majority have 2 photos for the same area because the little membrane is wrinkled and not the whole view is in focus. So I have to flip between the 2 (or 3) photos to make sure I get all the cells without counting them twice.

funny, I look at that photo as a graphic artist....the first thing I thought was, what a cool background image, love the texture!
LOL, good luck counting, Uli!
Oh lolol man that slide reminds me of those horrible times where I have to count red blood cells in class. Unfortunately we had to use a number clicker thing.. so you just hear click click click for like an hour non stop.
Though curious on what this is about. =o
Ewww ... I remember doing that in micro with colonies. Gah. One of my dishes had almost 400 colonies -_-. I would hate to imagine how many cells that was.
