AlamarBlue Cell Viability Assay Reagent


Cat. No.: 10434 Category:


Alamar Blue Cell Viability
Assay Reagent is used to quantitatively measure the viability of mammalian cell
lines, bacteria and fungi by incorporating a rapid, sensitive and reliable
fluorometric as well as colorimetric growth indicator.
assay involves reduction of alamarBlue Reagent oxidized form (blue color
reagent) to reduced form (red color) in presence of viable cells. This change
can be measured by using fluorescence or absorbance instruments. The AlamarBlue Reagent is an oxidized
form of redox indicator that is blue in color and non-fluorescent and detects cell
viability by converting from a non-fluorescent dye to the highly red
fluorescent dye resorufin in response to chemical reduction of growth medium
resulting from cell growth.

The assay is homogenous,
requires no cell lysis or washing offers a simple, rapid, reliable, sensitive,
safe and cost-effective measurement of cell viability. The AlamarBlue Reagent
allows for viability studies of chemical inhibitors on tumor cell lines and
toxicology research to establish baseline data for predicting the toxicity of
related novel agents by comparing such baseline data with known in vivo
toxicity. Viable cells maintain a reducing environment within their cytoplasm.
