 Preparation and Storage    The MTT Cell Proliferation Assay Reagent is a clear yellow ready-to-use solution, and it should be stored at -20 degree C protected from light. Store the Detergent Solution at room temperature. If precipitate or turbidity is observed in the Detergent Solution, warm the solution to 37 degree C for 10-20 minutes and agitate to dissolve the precipitate prior to use.
 Product Note    Our Assay Kit assays are dynamic research tools and sometimes they may be updated and improved. If the format of this assay is important to you then please request the current manual or contact our technical support team with a presales inquiry before placing an order. We will confirm the current details of the assay. We cannot guarantee the sample manual posted online is the most current manual.
 Other Notes    Small volumes of CytoSelect MTT Cell Proliferation Assay assay kit 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.

Related Product Information for CytoSelect MTT Cell Proliferation Assay assay kit

Principle of the assay: CytoSelect MTT Cell Proliferation Assay provides a colorimetric format for measuring and monitoring cell proliferation. The kit contains sufficient reagents for the evaluation of 960 assays in 96-well plates or 192 assays in 24-well plates. Cells can be plated and then treated with compounds or agents that affect proliferation. Cells are then detected with the proliferation reagent, which is converted in live cells from the yellow tetrazole MTT to the purple formazan form by a cellular reductase (Figure 1). An increase in cell proliferation is accompanied by an increased signal, while a decrease in cell proliferation (and signal) can indicate the toxic effects of compounds or suboptimal culture conditions. The assay principles are basic and can be applied to most eukaryotic cell lines, including adherent and non-adherent cells and certain tissues. This cell proliferation reagent can be used to detect proliferation in bacteria, yeast, fungi, protozoa as well as cultured mammalian and piscine cells.

Background: The measurement and monitoring of cell proliferation is an essential technique in any laboratory focused on cell-based research. This skill allows for the optimization of cell culture conditions as well as the determination of cytokine, growth factor, or hormone activity. More importantly, the cytostatic nature of anticancer compounds in toxicology testing, the efficacy of therapeutic chemicals in drug screening, and cell-mediated cytotoxicity can all be assessed through the quantification and monitoring of cell proliferation. Cell proliferation characteristics include cellular metabolic activity and cell membrane integrity. One method for measuring metabolic activity is to incubate the cells with a tetrazolium salt such as WST-1, which is cleaved into a colored formazan product by metabolically active cells. Similarly, the green fluorescent dye Calcein AM can measure intracellular esterase activity in proliferating live cells, which is another indicator of cell viability.
