Uses of MSCLIght™
  • Determine the number of viable mesenchymal stem / stromal cells in proliferation.
  • Replaces the colony-forming unit - fibroblast (CFU-F) assay.
  • Replaces all MTT assays.
  • Experimental transplantation and regeneration models.
  • Effects of growth factors/cytokines.
  • In vivo to in vitro assays.
  • Gene targeting assays.

 

Benefits of using MSCLight™
  • Uses an ELISA plate reader, available in most laboratories.
  • No CFU-F colony counting needed.
  • Non-subjective, instrument-based and quantitative.
  • Assay kits include high performance MSCGro™ medium with either low serum or serum free formulations.
  • MSCLight™ can be used with fluorescence-labeled and GLP-labeled mesenchymal stem cells from HemoGenix®.
  • Results in about 3-5 days depending on species and origin of MSC.
  • Complete assay kit includes everything needed to culture and measure mesenchymal stem cells from any tissue source.
  • Easy to learn, fast to use.
Benefits of using MSCLight™ Complete

Same as for MSCLight™, but inclues a vial of frozen MSCs derived from human umbilical cord blood or bone marrow.

 MSCLight™ Principle
  • Incorporates a customized Promega CellTiter 96® AQueous One reagent that measures the amount of soluble formazan by absorbance at 490nm produced by a MTS tetrazolium reduction colorimetric reaction.
  • After culture, just add 20μl of the MTS reagent and read absorbance at 490nm after 1-4 hours in a 96-well plate reader.
  • No solubilization step as in a MTT reaction.
  • Read results in an aborbance plate reader between 1-4 hours after addition of MTS reagent. Plates can be returned to incubator and re-read at a later time for increased sensitivity.

 Use and Major Equipment Required

For Research Use Only.

Major Equipment Required

An absorbance plate readr or multiparameter plate reader to measure absorbance at 490nm.
