Promega's CellTiter-Glo™ Luminescent Cell Viability Assay is a highly sensitive method for assaying cell proliferation and cytotoxicity. The assay uses a unique, stable form of luciferase to measure ATP as an indicator of viable cells. The luminescent signal produced is proportional to the number of viable cells present in culture. The homogeneous format of the assay is well suited for high-throughput applications and is scalable from 96-, 384- and 1536-well formats with little or no loss in sensitivity. Results can be achieved rapidly, while the extended glow luminescence feature offers flexibility in processing large batches of plates.
