Research Use Only
For Research Use Only. Not for use in diagnostic procedures.
Preservative stabilizers
None present
Test Principle
Cell proliferation assay.

┬Ľ Growing cells cause a chemical reduction of alamarBlue┬«.
┬Ľ Continued growth maintains a reduced environment. (fluorescent, red).
┬Ľ Inhibition of growth maintains an oxidized environment. (non-fluorescent, blue).
┬Ľ Data may be collected using either fluorescence-based or absorbance-based instrumentation.
┬Ľ Fluorescence is monitored at 530-560nm excitation wavelength and 590nm emission wavelength.
┬Ľ Absorbance is monitored at 570nm and 600nm.
Intended Use
Cell proliferation assays.
┬Ľ The reagent can be used to establish proliferation or relative cytotoxicity in a cell proliferation assay.
┬Ľ Baseline data for predicting the toxicity of related novel agents can be compared to baseline data with known in-vivo toxicity.
┬Ľ alamarBlue ┬« is for use between pH6.8 and pH7.4.

Other Notes
Small volumes of alamarBlue accessory reagent vial(s) may occasionally become entrapped in the seal of the product vial during shipment and storage. If necessary, briefly centrifuge the vial on a tabletop centrifuge to dislodge any liquid in the container`s cap. Certain products may require to ship with dry ice and additional dry ice fee may apply.

alamarBlue accessory reagent
The cell proliferation assay reagent alamarBlue® is designed to provide a rapid and sensitive measure of cell proliferation and cytotoxicity in various human and animal cell lines, bacteria andfungi.alamarBlue® is an indicator dye, that incorporates an o xidation-reduction (REDOX) indicator thatboth fluoresces and changes colour in response to the chemical reduction of growth medium,resulting from cell growth. The alamarBlue® cell proliferation assay reagent is designed toquantitatively measure the proliferation of various human and animal cell lines, bacteria and fungi. Some variability in the absorbance may occur between batches of AlamarBlue® but allbatches should fall between 0.84 and 0.95AU when measured between 600nm and 602nm ona spectrophotometer.
Applications Tested/Suitable for alamarBlue accessory reagent
ELISA (EIA), Functional Assays (FN), Immunofluorescence (IF)
