PreClinical Services - Apoptosis and Cellular Viability Assays

  • Viable cells contain enzymes that are able to cleave colorimetric agents or bind to fluorescently labeled agents leading to:
  • the development of color that can be analyzed and measured using an absorbance reader.
  • the generation of a fluorescent signal.
  • Using the following techniques we can evaluate the number of living vs. dead cells in a total sample:
  • MTT or XTT
  • DNA laddering
  • Flow Cytometry
