WST-1 Cell Proliferation Kit (ready-to-use)
499,00€ – 1.699,00€
Immunservice’s WST-1 Cell Proliferation Kit allows easy, fast and accurate measurement of cell proliferation. Quantification is based on cleavage of the water-soluble tetrazolium salt WST-1 to a formazan dye by viable cells. An increase in the cell count leads to formation of a larger amount of the dye, which is quantified by measurement of the absorbance at 420 – 480 nm. The absorbance level correlates strongly with the number of viable cells in the assay.
In combination with our detailed directions for use you will find here the solution for the success of your cell proliferation and cell inhibitions experiments.
