Cell viability is an indicator of the proportion of healthy living cells in a population. Cell viability assays can be used to determine the general health of cells, optimize culture or experimental conditions, and measure cell survival after compound treatment (as in drug screening). Typically, cell viability assays provide a readout of cell health by measuring metabolic activity, ATP levels, or cell proliferation. Cell viability can also be assessed with cytotoxicity assays that provide readouts for markers of cell death such as loss of membrane integrity. The combined use of cell viability and cytotoxicity assays is an important tool for assessing cellular responses to target test compounds.
Cell viability is an important indicator for judging whether cells cultured in vitro can grow normally under certain conditions, such as drug treatment, radiation or ultraviolet irradiation, and changes in culture conditions. Cell activity detection indicators usually include cell membrane permeability to nucleic acid dyes, metabolic activity, membrane potential, etc. There are many research methods for cell proliferation, including: MTT, MTS, CCK8, etc.
