Shouldnt this article be renamed to "confluence"? Im not sure that "confluency" is even a word. (At least not in my Oxford dictionary - Im not english native). -- 12:23, 14 May 2007 (UTC)


I agree with the above statement; in my textbooks it's called confluence. There's really not much detail here either, stuff needs to be added on determining whether confluence will occur for a certain culture or not too. dreamcatcher23 13:31, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Confluence over Confluency[edit]

I agree with the previous posts as well, confluency doesn't seem to even be an English word. I have seen "confluence" used in peer reviewed articles in this context as well. 1:03, 3 December 2014 (EST)

Assessment comment[edit]

The comment(s) below were originally left at Talk:Confluency/Comments, and are posted here for posterity. Following several discussions in past years, these subpages are now deprecated. The comments may be irrelevant or outdated; if so, please feel free to remove this section.

Could someone clarify the meaning of 'confluency' by stating what 0% and 100% 'confluency' refer to, rather than 40-60%, which leaves it ambiguous? Does 0% or 100% 'confluency' refer to the end of the growth phase? And if an article refers to 'confluent' cells, does that mean the cells have reached 100% 'confluency'?
