An experimental technique is discussed in which the size distribution of a population of cells is determined by calculating each cell's settling velocity. The settling velocity is determined from microscopically obtained images which were recorded on SVHS tape. These images are then computer imaged and processed, and the cell's location and velocity are determined using a computer algorithm referred to as cell tracking velocimetry (CTV). Experimental data is presented comparing the distribution of human lymphocytes and a human breast cancer cell line, MCF-7, determined using a Coulter counter and the CTV approach.
