Incucyte® Cytotox Dye for Counting Dead Cells
Incucyte® Cytotox Dyes are highly sensitive cyanine nucleic acid dyes ideally suited to a simple mix-and-read, real-time quantification of cell death. Addition of the Incucyte® Cytotox Dye to normal healthy cells is non-perturbing to cell growth or morphology and yields little or no intrinsic fluorescent signal. Once cells become unhealthy plasma membrane integrity diminishes, allowing entry of the Incucyte® Cytoto Dye and yielding a 100-1000-fold increase in fluorescence upon binding to deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). With the Incucyte® integrated analysis software, fluorescent objects can be quantified and background fluorescence minimized.
These pre-aliquoted reagents have been validated for use with the Incucyte® Live-Cell Analysis System and enable real-time evaluation of cell membrane integrity and cell death in response to pharmacological agents and/or genetic and environmental factors. Furthermore, the Incucyte® Cytotox Dyes can be combined with the Incucyte® confluence metric, our range of Incucyte® Nuclight nuclear labeling reagents, Incucyte® Annexin V Dyes or Incucyte® Caspase-3/7 Dyes for multiplexed measurements of cytotoxicity alongside cell proliferation and apoptosis in a single well.
