WST-NR-CV Combined Cytotoxicity Assay Kit

Cytotoxicity assays are essential tools in drug discovery. In vitro single parameter cytotoxicity assays, such as using tetrazolium salt (WST), neutral red (NR) or crystal violet (CV) in cultured cells, are widely used to assess the cytotoxicity of different compounds as these methods are fast, economical and animal-free. However, a major problem of using single parameter assays is determined IC50 data using these individual assays sometimes can be quite different due to specific compound inhibition. Consequently, if the cytotoxicity assay is not selected appropriately, false negative compounds that are actually cytotoxic may be easily missed. To partly overcome this problem, multiple parameter cytotoxicity assays are faster and more comprehensive alternatives to determine IC50 and cytotoxicity in different pathways. Assay Genie's WST-NR-CV Combined Cytotoxicity Assay Kit can allow researchers to test the cytotoxicity of their compounds in different pathways such as in cell proliferation (WST), lysosome activity (NR) and total DNA synthesis (CV). The kit is simple and fast, yet it provides a quantitative measurement of the number of viable cells, it offers an excellent and efficient method for in vitro cytotoxicity studies as well as high-throughput drug screening.
