The measurement of mitochondrial dehydrogenases (e.g. LDH) activity is a well-accepted assay to quantify cell numbers and monitor cell viability.
ab112119 Cell Cytotoxicity Assay Kit provides a fast, simple, accurate and homogeneous assay for the fluorimetric detection of viable cells. ab112119 is based on the observation that oxidized non-fluorescent blue resazurin is reduced to a red fluorescent dye (resorufin) by accepting an electron from mitochondrial respiratory chain in live cells. The amount of resorufin produced is directly proportional to the number of living cells.
ab112119 is more sensitive for cell proliferation and cytotoxicity than other assays such as MTT. The kit components are quite stable with minimal cytotoxicity, thus a longer incubation time (such as 24-48 hours) is possible if required.
