Quantitate bacterial cell viability with the BacTiter-Glo™ Assay or test surfaces and liquids for biocontamination by detecting ATP using the ENLITEN® ATP Assay System.
BacTiter-Glo™ Microbial Cell Viability Assay
Determines the number of viable microbial cells in culture based on quantitation of ATP, an indicator of metabolically active cells. The resulting luminescent signal is directly proportional to the number of viable cells.
ENLITEN® ATP Assay System
The ENLITEN® ATP Assay System with the ENLITEN® rLuciferase/Luciferin Reagent is used to measure ATP levels for indirect detection of biocontamination on surfaces or in liquids.
This chapter of the Protocols and Applications Guide describes the various cell viability assays and helps you chose the right method for your needs.
The Cell Viability Assistant provides journal citations in which Promega cell viability and cytotoxicity systems have been used.
