  • Product overview

    Abcam's Cell Proliferation Assay Kit (Fluorometric-Blue) provides by far the most sensitive and easiest means for quantifying cell proliferation and viability. Simply add the single reagent to cell culture, incubate and read the fluorescence intensity. The assay utilizes the redox dye resazurin which is not fluorescent, but upon reduction by viable metabolically active cells, the dye becomes highly fluorescent (Ex = 530-570 nm; Em = 590-620 nm). Therefore, viable metabolically active cells can be easily measured.

  • Notes

    Key Features:

    1. Simple procedure: Just Add-Incubate-Read. No washing, No solublization.
    2. Highly Sensitive: Detect as few as 100 cells.
    3. Longer Stability: Reagent is stable at 4C for at least a year.
    4. Safe: Non-radioactive, non-toxic, and cells can be further used for other experiments.
    5. Wide applications: Used in studying a variety of growth stimulations or inhibitions (e.g., by growth factors, cytokine, nutrients, anticancer drugs, apoptosis inducers/inhibitors, toxicityinducing chemicals, etc.).

I don't think this should be a problem, but it may be necessary to increase the the dilution factor for your sample to avoid that the measurements are outside the scale.
I hope this information is helpful to you. ...
