Do you have a fluorescent cell viability assay that I can measure in 96 well format?

Our Resazurin Cell Viability Assay (Cat. No. 30025) has red fluorescence (Ex/Em 530-560/590 nm), and is specifically designed for microplate reader. It is an economical, easy-to-use, and homogeneous (no-wash) assay for quantifying live cells. It is similar to alamarBlue®, PrestoBlue®, and CellTiter-Blue®.

The Calcein AM Cell Viability Assay (Cat. No. 30026) has green fluorescence (Ex/Em 485/530 nm), and also works well for microplate reader. This assay requires culture medium to be removed from cells before adding the viability dye in buffer. We also offer the Viability/Cytotoxicity Assay for Animal Live & Dead Cells, which combines calcein-AM with the fluorescent dead cell stain EthD-III, and is compatible with microplate reader.
