Counting chamber error“The sample is not the population”

Usually, a small quantity is extracted from the original sample in order to carry out the counting. This sample will have a different concentration than the original one. Once this is done, the content is pipetted into the counting chamber.

How to reduce this error?

In order to reduce this error it is convenient to shake the sample with a shaker, and extract the necessary quantity to carry out the cell counting as soon as possible. Likewise, a pipette can be used to shake the sample, pipetting repeatedly into the recipient where the sample is taken from.
