Different neuronal cultures
DENSE SMALL SPARSE
Plating volume (μL) 20 5 20
Density of suspension (cells/ μL) 2500 2500 625
Nominal number of plated cells 50000 12500 12500
Number of studied cultures 15 7 6
Number of studied batches 6 2 2

To notice how the plating volume and density of suspension for dense and sparse cultures are the same, but they have a different number of plated cells. Small cultures have the same density of suspension as dense cultures, but the number of plated cells is the same as sparse cultures.
