Does any body have a suggestion for easier and faster cell counting
methods than using haemacytometer? Counting cells is a tidious job
especially when there are lots of samples to count. It seems using
coulter, a particle counter, is one substitute. However a coulter is
not cheap and sometimes cells block the tube in the coulter. I
experienced often. Is there any other good way to count cancer cells?

If you don't want low-tech counting and don't want high-tech counting,
maybe you could consider an alternative to counting.
How about measuring something else, such as amount of DNA or protein?
These can be related to cell number -- with assumptions and caveats.
It is up to you to decide whether they are appropriate for your needs.
If so, then look for something that is fairly simply to do with
