Cell Proliferation Assay Kit (Fluorometric)

Assay Genie's Cell Proliferation Assay Kit (Fluorometric) provides an easy and quantitative method to measure cell proliferation and cytotoxicity. The assay is based on a nuclear dye that specifically binds to nucleic acid in the cell and generates green fluorescence. The generated fluorescent intensity is directly proportional to the cell number, which can be quantified by measuring fluorescence (Ex/Em = 480/538 nm). This assay kit provides a just add-and-read, non-radioactive, and high-throughput method for cell proliferation and apoptosis. The assay is rapid and more sensitive than MTT, XTT, or MTS-based assays and can detect a wide linear range of 25-60,000 cells.

Figure: Cell proliferation assay. a) 5X Nuclear Dye/Cell Lysis Buffer solution was directly added to the serially diluted Jurkat cells in culture medium. Cells were incubated for 15 min. b) For low cell number and/or high sensitivity, cells were spun down to remove the medium before adding 1X Nuclear Dye/Cell Lysis Buffer solution or competitor dye. Cells were incubated for 15 min. Assays were performed according to the kit protocol.
