Cell Viability Assay Kit (Green Fluorescence) is a fluorescent assay used to label cells for fluorescence microplate and microscopic investigations of cellular functions.
There are a variety of parameters that can be used to monitor cell viability. The proprietary green fluorescent dye used in the kit is a hydrophobic compound. It easily permeates intact live cells and gets enhanced fluorescence upon entering into live cells. The hydrolysis of the non-fluorescent substrate by intracellular esterases generates a strongly green fluorescent hydrophilic product that is well-retained in the cell cytoplasm. The green fluorophore generated by the non-fluorescent substrate used in the kit has the spectral properties of fluorescein at Ex/Em = ~490 nm/520 nm. When well excited with the Argon Laser at 488 nm, the fluoreophore emits intense green fluorescence at ~520 nm.
The kit provides all the essential components with an optimized cell-labeling protocol for fluorescence microplate assays.
