Will cell debris be counted?

No. In a typical cell culture, cell debris is smaller in size and different in morphology than live cells. The Cellometer software excludes debris because it will fall outside of the requirements to be counted as a cell. For fluorescent instruments, the debris will not be stained when using an enzymatic or nuclear dye.
