The LIVE/DEAD™ Violet Viability/Vitality Kit provides a two-color fluorescence cell viability and vitality assay that is based on the simultaneous determination of live and dead cells with two probes that measure recognized parameters of cell health: plasma membrane integrity and intracellular esterase activity. Calcein violet AM and aqua-fluorescent reactive dye are optimal dyes for this application; both dyes utilize the violet laser allowing other laser lines to be used for conventional fluorochromes.
