Accurately measuring cell viability
Are all viability dyes created equal?
Presenter: Jeff Kremer, PhD / Field Application Scientist
Are all viability dyes created equal? The answer may surprise you… There is a wide range of detection methods and biochemical principles behind the function of viability dyes that can impact your data. From trypan blue to several different fluorescent dyes.
In this webinar, we will:
- Cover-off the classification and practicality behind commonly used viability dyes based on measurement techniques, exclusion principles, and their use in automated cell counting
- Take an in-depth look at each dye’s composition
- How each dye interacts with cells
- The pros and cons associated with the dyes’ laboratory use
