The quality of the tissue is a very important factor in respect to the yield. Nevertheless, 1 × 106 hAEpC per gram of tissue can be obtained. 13. Mix up 25 μl of the hAEpC suspension and 25 μl of the Trypan Blue solution. Use the Neubauer hemocytometer to calculate the number of viable and dead cells per ml. Dead cells appear blue under the light microscope; viable cells do not take up the dye. Since the uptake of Trypan Blue is time dependent, viable cells can also become blue after a while. Time is of the essence.
