Abstract

was used to assess the accuracy of the volume distribution measured with a Coulter counter. The volumes of the cells were shown to be underestimated because of their electrical conductivity. Theoretical considerations predicted the observed excessive skewness of the distributions. It is concluded that the only reliable parameter obtained from a Coulter volume distribution is the mean size.
