LDH Cytotoxicity Detection Kit
The easiest way to measure cell death is by measuring lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), a stable cytoplasmic enzyme present in all cells but only released when the plasma membrane is damaged. The LDH Cytotoxicity Detection Kit provides a simple and precise colorimetric assay for LDH activity: a two-step enzymatic reaction creates a formazan dye that is easily measured by A492.
Why use the LDH Cytotoxicity Detection Kit?
- Sensitive assay—detect as few as 2,000 dead or damaged cells per well
- Accurate results—the measurement of formazan dye is directly proportional to the number of dead or damaged cells
- Simple protocol—get results in 30 minutes with just two steps
Fast, simple LDH assay protocol
The LDH assay does not require prelabeling or washing steps. The entire procedure can be performed in a single 96-well plate.
