Accession:MMO:0000503 term browser browse the term
Definition:An experimental procedure to measure the rate, level or amount of growth and reproduction of isolated cells.
Comment:Scope note: this term is intended for use in cases where the resulting measurement is of the growth of the cells, not when cell growth is used as a readout to determine the amount or activity of an applied substance. For that application, use "cell proliferation bioassay" (MMO:0000442).
