Principle of ATP Bioluminescence Cell Proliferation/Cytotoxicity Assays

All ATP bioluminescence assays kits from Preferred Cell Systems™ include an ATP standard(s) and controls.  Performing the ATP standard curve and controls is highly recommended. The controls are used to calibrate the luminescence plate reader and the ATP standard is used to standardize the assay. The values obtained from the standard curve and controls (see diagram below) are then compared to the measurement assurance parameters that are provided in the instruction manual. If the values obtained are within the ranges provided by the measurement assurance parameters, you, the user, have successfully performed the proficiency testing to ensure that you have not only performed the assay correctly, but that the results you obtain can be trusted.

No additional proficiency testing is required if the calibration and standardization procedure is performed. The values you obtain from each calibration and standardization can be logged and used for certification that the assay has been performed correctly and that the results are trustworthy.
