The Pierce LDH Cytotoxicity Assay Kit measures extracellular LDH in culture media using an enzymatic reaction that results in a red formazan product which can be measured spectrophotometrically. Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is a cytosolic enzyme that is is an indicator of cellular toxicity. The assay is ideal for high-throughput screening and provides a safe alternative to radioactive cytotoxicity assays.

Highlights:

  • Convenient – add–mix–read assay format for adherent and suspension cells

  • Colorimetric – quantitatively measures LDH release by formation of colored product

  • Robust – uses stable LDH enzyme activity as a cytotoxic marker

  • Flexible – ideal for high–throughput screening

  • Non–radioactive – safe alternative to 51Cr–release cytotoxicity assays

Includes:

Kit contains substrate mix, assay buffer, 10X lysis buffer, stop solution, and LDH positive control

Requires:

Microplate reader capable of reading absorbance at 490nm and 680nm, flat-bottom clear 96–well plate compatible with spectrophotometer, multichannel pipette

Recommended for:

  • Measure in vitro cytotoxicity mediated by chemicals, immune cells, or siRNA or microRNA
  • Detect cytolysis in bioreactor or 3D tissue engineering applications
