The Quick Cell ProliferationAssay Kit provides all reagents and detailed instructions for a fast and sensitive quantification of cell proliferationAnd viability. The assay is based on the cleavage of the tetrazolium salt WST-1 to formazan by cellular mitochondrial dehydrogenases. Expansion in the number of viable cells resulted in an increase in the activity of the mitochondrial dehydrogenases, which leads to the increase in the amount of formazan dye formed. The formazan dye produced by viable cells can be quantified by multi-well spectrophotometer (microtiter plate reader) by measuring the absorbance of the dye solutionAt 440 nm. The assay can be used for the measurement of cell proliferation in response to growth factors, cytokines, mitogens, and nutrients, etc. It can also be used for the analysis of cytotoxic compounds like anticancer drugs and many other toxic agents and pharmaceutical compounds.
