Average Mass of T-Cell Lymphocyte

In summary, the average mass of a T-cell lymphocyte is approximately 1.5-2.5 picograms (pg). It is important to know this average mass for understanding the immune response and identifying any abnormalities or changes in T-cell populations. The average mass is typically measured using flow cytometry. It can vary between individuals due to genetic and environmental factors, as well as the specific type and stage of development of the T-cell. The average mass can also change over time due to aging, infection, exposure to toxins, and lifestyle factors.

Does anyone know or know where I could find the average mass of a single lymphocyte? Specifically, a T-cell?

I have no idea. An order-of-magnitude guess would be 1 ng.
