PrestoBlue Cell Viability Reagent is a ready-to-use, non-toxic, resazurin-based solution that functions as a cell health indicator by using the reducing power of living cells to quantitatively measure viability.
We have introduced a superior version of this product—the Invitrogen PrestoBlue HS (High Sensitivity) Cell Viability Reagent that retains all the key characteristics that make PrestoBlue a great cell viability, now with improved sensitivity.

PrestoBlue HS reagent is recommended for quick viability determination (10 minute incubation), whereas alamarBlue HS reagent is recommended in cases of extended viability studies or when using a high cell density.
Easy multiplexing of a caspase-3/7 detection reagent and PrestoBlue cell viability reagent using high-throughput screening. CHO-K1 cells were plated in the presence of a dilution series of staurosporine, in phenol red–free complete media. Following incubation, PrestoBlue reagent and CellEvent Caspase-3/7 Green Detection Reagent were added directly to the wells, and the plate was incubated. Fluorescence signals detected were correlated to live and apoptotic cell populations.
Expertly detect fluorescence with Thermo Scientific plate readers
High-sensitivity fluorescence detection for 96-1,536 samples can be quickly performed on Fluoroskan or Fluoroskan FL Microplate Fluorometer or Varioskan LUX Multimode Microplate Reader using Invitrogen reagents for optimal detection. Take advantage of automatic dynamic range selection to get optimal gain settings for each individual well and automation capabilities for even higher throughput.
