The Cell Proliferation Reagent WST-1 is designed to be used for the nonradioactive, spectrophotometric quantification of cell proliferation and viability in cell populations using the 96-well-plate format. It can be used for:
Measurement of cell proliferation in response to growth factors, cytokines, mitogens, and nutrients
Analysis of cytotoxic and cytostatic compounds, such as anti-cancer drugs and other pharmaceutical compounds
Assessment of growth inhibitory antibodies and physiological mediators
Safe: No radioactive isotopes are used.
Accurate: The absorbance revealed strongly correlates to the cell number.
Sensitive: Low cell numbers are detected.
Fast: The use of a multiwell ELISA reader allows a larger number of samples to be processed.
Easy: No washing steps or additional reagents are required.
