Cytotoxicity Kits: Cytotoxicty Multiple Parameter Kits
A range of kits available for single and multiple parameter cytotoxiity testing
The multiple endpoint IN CYTOTOX test kits allow to determine up to four parameters from the same cellular sample. For example membrane integrity, cellular metabolism, mitochondrial activity and total protein synthesis or cell proliferation can be assessed from the same cells. This technical optimization used in the combined kits allows to increase the relevance of correlation of the tests, to increase the chances to detect cytotoxic effects, and to reduce the overall handling time and the amount of test compounds needed. It allows also to make optimal use of rare and valuable cell samples such as primary cell cultures. Multiple endpoint kits may also give hints at mechanisms of toxicity.
