Cell Viability Measurement

Viability is a measure of the metabolic state of a cell population
which is indicative of the potential for growth

Most common method: membrane integrity

Studies involving characterization of pharmacological reagents and their effect on cell cycle regulation

Trypan blue exclusion: leaky membrane allows blue dye to get into cells

Good: capable for manual microscopy

Issues: operator dependent

Cellometer solution: use software algorithm

Reduce operator dependency

Reduce calculation error

Speed up counting

Better management of data
