saturation density
The maximal population density achieved by a cell type grown under particular in vitro culture conditions. Although transformed cells generally grow to a higher saturation density than normal cells this is not necessarily the case. Many factors affect the final density achieved by a cell population; the critical factor may be availability of surface upon which to spread or the serum concentration in the medium. Population densities in culture never approach those found in whole organisms.
