These kits span both pre-lethal and post-lethal toxicity profiling to provide essential data on drug effects on cell stress, metabolic activity, viability and proliferation. For early indicators of toxicity we recommend our ROS Detection Kit or MitoPT/mitochondrial permeability transition pore opening kits. To measure reductions in ATP consider our patented RubyGlow™ red luciferase cell viability assays, a red alternative to the popular green emitting Cell Titer Glow™ assays. Finally, our Live:Dead kits and the MTT based Non-Radioactive Cell Proliferation Assay Kit are clear indicators of lethal drug effects on cell number. All the kits are validated for single cell imaging as well as microplate formats.
This kit allows fast and easy measurement of both living and dead cells by measuring intracellular esterase activity (live cells) with a green emitting dye while staining of nucleic acids in chromatin (dead cells) with a red emitting dye. Learn More
Iodinated and chlorinated derivative of fluorescein. Since it does not easily cross live cell membranes, it has been used to stain dead or degenerated epithelial cells of the cornea and conjunctiva (including nuclei and cell walls) producing a red color. Learn More
