Premixed WST-1 assay—easy, colorimetric test for cell growth
Use Premix WST-1 Cell Proliferation Assay System to measure cell proliferation and viability, or to measure cytotoxicity, and growth inhibition. A mitochondrial enzyme in viable cells converts WST-1 to a dye. Simply measure its absorbance. In this simple assay dye levels are proportional to the numbers of proliferating cells.
Why use the WST-1 cell proliferation assay system?
- Save time—No harvesting or washing, get results in 1 hr
- Save reagents—Premixed WST-1 lasts two weeks at 4°C, or one year at –20°C, other WST-1 reagents last just three days at 4°C or one month at –20°C
- Higher sensitivity—Better than MTT and XTT
Simple, fast, and easy
Know if your cells are proliferating in just 1 hour*:
