Question

Please go step by step! I really want to understand, thank you!

7) You are given a culture of cells. You mixed 10uL of the diluted cell culture with 10uL of trypan blue and loaded a hemocytometer. You counted a total of 105 cells in all four quadrants. Answer the following questions below and SHOW OR EXPLAIN YOUR WORK.

A. How many cells/mL does the original cell culture contain?

B. You are asked to make a 0.5mL of working stock cell suspension that contain 500 cells/mL. How would you make this working stock cell suspension? Use the equation C1 x V1 = C2 x V2 to solve this problem. Be sure to note what C1, V1, C2 and V2 is. Write your final answer in microliters (uL).

C. One microliter is the smallest amount you can pipette accurately. How would you serially dilute your original cell sample so you can accurately create a 0.5mL working stock suspension of 500 cells/mL. Be sure to redo all your calculations and explain in the end how you would mix your cells and media to create your working stock. Keep your final answers to one decimal point (such as 1.1uL or 2.7uL). Be sure to include how much volume of media you would add to your diluted cells in your final answer.

Answer #1

Use the information below to answer the following questions.
After taking an aliquot of J558 suspension cells from your T75
culture flask, you dilute this aliquot in Trypan Blue in a 1:1
ratio. After loading the cells on the hemocytometer you obtain the
following counts:
Transparent cells
Blue cells

1) What is the cell viability?
2) What is the density...

E. coli culture is given. Turbidity assay 1 OD 600
(optical
density measured at 600 nm) of this culture correlates with 1 x
10^8 cells per mL.
Q-1. how would I make 1 mL of a diluted culture of this stock
that would give a 0.25 OD 600 . (fill in the blanks below)
I would add __________ (µL) of the original culture to __________
(µL) of
media to obtain a _____ times diluted 1 mL media that would give...

7. 25 ml of 6 M NaOH was diluted with water to 400 ml. What is
the pH and pOH of the final solution? What is the [H+] and [OH-]?
(Remain calm; remember the formula for dilution from the previous
lab session: (V1)(C1) = (V2)(C2) )
8. A solution was made by dissolving 10 g of NaOH (formula
weight 40 g/mole) in water and the final volume brought to 500 ml.
What is the pH, pOH, [H+] and [OH–] of...

To subculture cells, you must plate the cells on a new plates at
a specific density that depends on that cell line and the purpose
of your experiment. If you needed to plate the cells(ie. That your
group resuspended in 50microliters) at a concentration of 2200
cells per cm2 onto 35mm plates that have an effective growth
surface area of 9cm2, how would you do this? The final volume of
media for a 35mm plate is 2mL.
A.Total # of...

1. Suppose you were to separate 5 ml of blood and have a 65%
recovery of the white blood cells. Suppose further that 80% of
those cells were viable. You resuspend the recovered cells in 10 ml
of media (RPMI + FCS, keeps the cells from blowing up). You then
dilute them 1:10 in the same medium, and follow the protocol for
Trypan blue staining. Based on what you know of the percentage of
white blood cells in blood, how...

I have done these problems but am unsure if the answers I got
were correct, Please show all steps so I can fully understand!
1.) How many microliters of original sample are
required to produce a final dilution of 10-3 in a total
volume of 1 mL? INFO: 1
microliter is 10-6 L or 10-3 mL.
2.) If you suspect your culture of bacteria has 240 x
106 cells per mL, what would you want the final dilution
to be...

I have a tricky dilution question. You have a stock solution of
methylene blue at 1g/100ml. Make 250ul of methylene blue at a
concentration of 150ug/100ml with as little waste as possible (have
as little excess as possible). So I have the dilution formula
C1V1 = C2V2. That means
(1g/100ml)V1 = (150ug/100ml)(250ul). I converted
C1 to ug and got 106ug/100ml which reduces
down to 104ug/1ml. Please correct anything I may have
wrong. Next I cnverted V2 to ml to keep...

You are a directed studies student (undergraduate
student conducting research in a lab for course credit) and your
supervisor asks you to use a cryopreserved cell culture stock to
determine where an enzyme is located in the cell and to measure its
activity.
The cryopreserved yeast or E. coli cells have been
genetically modified to express a synthetic enzyme. During the
synthesis of this enzyme it is thought that the enzyme could be
incorporated into different membranes within the cell....

2. RDRPkill has a molecular weight of 400. You have a small,
concentrated 500 mM stock solution. a. Express this concentration
in the following units:
i. M
ii. μg/μL
iii. % (w/v)
iv. weight/dL
b. How much of this compound would you have to weigh out if you
were to make up 500 µL of the solution?
c. If you added 5 μL of a 500 mM solution to a cell incubation
with a total volume of 2 mL i....

Part III – Something's Not Right
“It’s good to have you home, honey. I missed you. How was the
flight?” Stacey had come to the airport to pick Frank up and she
leaned over to kiss him as he climbed into the car with his
luggage. “How were the meetings? You look tired,” she added.
“The past week was intense and I am exhausted. I thought I would
manage some R & R during the trip, but no such luck....
