The Perfecta3D Cell Viability Kit, from 3D Biomatrix and Cayman Chemical, is a new assay kit for measuring the viability of 3-D spheroids and one of the first viability assays optimized for 3-D cell culture.LISTED UNDER: Assay Instruments | Cell-based Assays
Promega launched the ROS-Glo H2O2 Assay. A non-horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-dependent, plate-based bioluminescent assay for detecting reactive oxygen species (ROS), ROS-Glo H2O2 Assay is designed to specifically detect hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) in both enzyme and cell-based applications.LISTED UNDER: Cell-based Assays
Enzo Life Sciences has expanded its offering of products for oxidative stress research with the addition of the Cyto-ID Hypoxia/Oxidative Stress Detection Kit and Mito-ID O2 and pH Sensor Probes. These assays provide unique and time-saving solutions to enable accurate profiling of hypoxia, reactive oxygen species (ROS) and mitochondrial dysfunction related to oxidative stress.LISTED UNDER: Cell-based Assays
Molecular Devices announced the launch of FLIPR Calcium 6 Assay Kits, the latest addition to their range of calcium assay kits to address diversified GPCR and ion channel targets. Featuring a proprietary fluorophore, the dye offers a highest quantum yield, delivering the greatest signal window available in a calcium assay kit.LISTED UNDER: Cell-based Assays
The development of the 3D reconstructed human skin micronucleus (RSMN) assay is the first to overcome the limitations of traditional cell culture methods. It can provide a more biologically relevant result than standard 2D in vitro genotoxicity assays, since it provides a functional stratum corneum, which accounts for permeability and appears to have a normal dermal metabolic capability.LISTED UNDER: Cell-based Assays
Millipore launched new high content analysis kits for detecting neurotoxicity.
The use of cell-based assays is crucial for understanding the efficacy, specificity, permeability, solubility, stability and mechanism of drug interaction with target cells
