Resazurin can be utilized as a simple and quantitative method for measuring cell proliferation, viability, and cytotoxicity. It is a non-toxic, water soluble, redox-sensitive dye that changes from its blue/non-fluorescent state to a pink/highly-fluorescent state upon reduction by viable cells. Fluorescence can be read using 544 nm excitation and 590 nm emission wavelengths, or absorbance can be read using a spectrophotometer set at 570 nm.
Label: Resazurin changes from blue/non-fluorescent to pink/highly-fluorescent Testing Format: Microplate reader Sample Type: Cultured cells Size: 100 mL
