XTT is used to assess cell viability as a function of redox potential. Actively respiring cells convert the water-soluble XTT to a water-soluble, orange colored formazan product. Unlike MTT, XTT does not require solubilization prior to quantitation, thereby reducing the assay time in many viability assay protocols. Moreover, the sensitivity of the XTT reduction assay is reported to be similar to or better than that of the MTT reduction assay.
