This kit uses the MTT dye to measure cell viability.
The MarkerGene™ Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay Kit uses the common tetrazolium dye MTT to quickly and accurately measure cell viability. The assay relies on the reduction of MTT by intracellular oxidoreductases in live cells. The absorbance of this colored solution is then quantified using a plate reader or spectrophotometer with absorbance reading at 550-600 nm. A very commonly used method, the MTT assay has been referenced over 10,000 times in PubMed.
The MarkerGene™ Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay Kit provides sufficient reagents for 2500 assays of 100 ul each.
