Q:

How does the performance of the ViaLight kits compare with other assays routinely used in cell proliferation/cytotoxicity assays?  

A:

We have compared the ViaLight kits to all other assays routinely used in cell viability studies and have found the performance to be superior in every case.  This is due to the combination of extreme sensitivity and wide dynamic range of bioluminescent measurement.  The ViaLight kits can determine very subtle changes in the viability status of cultures which reveal cytotoxicity missed by other methods such as tetrazolium dyes, resazurin reagents and LDH assays.  Additionally, ViaLight kits provide the most simple and rapid methods available for cell viability research.
