Cell Transformation Assay Kit (Fluorometric)

Transformed cells can proliferate without attaching to surface Anchorage-independent cell growth is the hallmark of cell transformation. The Soft-Agar Assay is a traditional method for screening cell transformation in vitro. However, this method is lengthy (3-4 weeks incubation), laborious (counting colonies) and inconsistent (due to subjective counting). Assay Genie's Cell Transformation Assay is faster, stable, and more sensitive than the traditional soft-agar assay. The kit uses a quantitative dye that binds to nucleic acid and generates green fluorescence. This one-step method is non-radioactive and simple (just add-and-read, and does not require tedious labor such as counting colonies). The assay is high-throughput adaptable and has wide linear range from 50-60,000 cells. The entire assay can be finished within 7-8 days.

Cells were solubilized and detected by the Quantitative Dye. c) Image of a HeLa Colony. HeLa cells were cultured for 7 days according to the kit protocol.
