Description & Specifications


Storage Requirements -20°C
Product Type CellTiter 96 AQueous Nonradioactive Cell Proliferation Assay
Quantity 1000 Assays
For Use With (Application) For determining the number of viable cells in proliferation, cytotoxicity or chemosensitivity assays, cell viability, chemotaxis
Detection Method Colorimetric

Contains a solution composed of a novel tetrazolium compound, MTS [3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-5-(3-carboxymethoxyphenyl)-2-(4-sulfophenyl)-2H-tetrazolium, inner salt] and an electron coupling reagent, PMS (phenazine methosulfate). The MTS and PMS solutions are combined and added to cells in culture.

  • Designed to be performed quickly and easily in a 96-well plate with no washing or cell harvesting; detects as few as 1000 cells/well
  • Flexible assay can follow either a five-hour or overnight protocol
  • Eliminates solubilization steps because the colored product is soluble in tissue culture medium
  • Requires no scintillation cocktail, volative organic solvents, or radioactive waste disposal, increasing user safety
