Description

The CyQUANT® NF Cell Proliferation Assay provides a fast and sensitive method for counting cells in a population and measuring proliferation in microplate format.

Features of the CyQUANT® NF Cell Proliferation Assay:

• More sensitive than MTT or AlamarBlue® assays
• Linear detection range from 100 to 20,000 cells per well (96-well microplate)
• Assays can be completed in one hour

A Rapid and simple method for measuring cell proliferation
The CyQUANT® NF Cell Proliferation Assay does not require cell lysis, long incubations, radioactivity, or removal of stain from cells. The CyQUANT® NF assay eliminates the freeze-thaw cell lysis step of the original CyQUANT® cell proliferation assay by using a cell-permeant DNA-binding dye in combination with a plasma membrane permeabilization reagent. The CyQUANT® NF Cell Proliferation Assay can be used in either 96-well or 384-well microplate formats, and is available in two configurations: a 200 assay kit (C35007) for smaller sample sizes, and a 1000 assay kit (C35006) for high-throughput applications.
