Do you need bulk/larger quantities?
Fluorometric kit for simple and accurate cell proliferation and cytotoxicity assays. Advantages: No radioisotopes, more sensitive than the colorimetric assay, short staining reaction time, no solubilization step, correlates with the [3H]-thymidine incorporation assay.

Product Details

Alternative Name:CCKi-F
Applications:Fluorescence microscopy
Handling:Protect from light.
Shipping:Blue Ice
Long Term Storage:-20°C
Technical Info/Product Notes:Principle: The amount of a fluorescent dye, calcein, produced from calcein-AM (3’,6’-Di(O-acetyl)-2’,7’-bis[N,N-bis-(carboxymethyl)aminomethyl]fluorescein . tetraacetoxymethyl ester) by esterases in cells is directly proportional to the number of viable cells in a culture medium. Since calcein-AM is highly lipophilic due to the acetoxymethyl groups, it can rapidly permeate into the cytoplasma through the cell membrane. The detection range of the number of viable cells by CCKi-F is from <50 to at least 25,000 cells.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only
