Cytotoxicity Assays

Cell viability ismeasured by determining the number of living and dead cells in a total cell sample. An increase in cell viability is accompanied by cell growth, while a decrease in cell viability can indicate the toxic effects of compounds or suboptimal culture conditions

The measurement and monitoring of cell cytotoxicity is an essential technique in any laboratory focused on cell-based research. Cells exposed to a cytotoxic compound can respond in a number of ways.

Our CytoSelect™ Cell Viability and Cytotoxicity Assay Kit is ideal for measuring and monitoring live and dead cells, while our CytoSelect™ LDH Cytotoxicity Assay Kit measures and monitors cell cytotoxicity via the release of lactose dehydrogenase from the cell cytoplasm.
