Solution 20 – VitaBright-48™ is a staining reagent containing the dye VitaBright-48™ (VB-48™). This thiol-reactive fluorescent probe is used to detect changes in the level of reduced thiols such as GSH in apoptotic cells or cells undergoing other pathological processes. Solution 20 – VitaBright-48™ is used to detect changes in the level of reduced thiols, such as GSH, in apoptotic cells or cells undergoing other pathological processes. As the level of reduced thiols is an indicator of the overall health status, this assay provides a very easy and fast way to evaluate cell vitality.
VB-48™ is a non-fluorescent compound, however, it forms a strongly fluorescent product inside viable cells. VB-48™ stains cells in an intensity-dependent manner reflecting their redox status. A high fluorescence intensity of a particular cell indicates that the cell has a high level of reduced thiols. VB-48™ is a marker for detection of midstage to late apoptosis in mammalian cells.
