Principle of ATPBioluminescence 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 instrument and the ATP standard is used to standardize the assay. The values obtained provide the measurement assurance parameters that allow you, the user, to ensure that the results obtained can be trusted.

An example of an ATP standard curve and control results are shown in the diagram below and actual values for the kit being used are given in the Technical Manual. If the values obtained are within the ranges given in the Technical Manual, the user can process the samples knowing that the results will be trustworthy.

Calibration and standardization of an ATP bioluminescence assay from Preferred Cell Systems™ - Measurement Assurance

SkinGlo™-Tox HT can be used with isolated primary skin cell types and keratinocytes from different species. The assay can also be used with skin cell lines. 

SkinGlo™-Tox HT assays are available with 96-well plates. Upon required, 384-well plates are also available.

For Research Use Only. Not for clinical diagnostic use.
Luminescence or multimode plate reader with "glow" luminescence measuring capability.

  • IMDM base medium for dilution of ATP standard.
  • ATP standard.
  • ATP controls.
  • ATP Enumeration Reagent.
  • Sterile, solid white 96-well plates. Available for adherent or non-adherent cells.
  • Non-sterile, solid, white 96-well plates.
  • Sterile, adhesive foil covers to maintain sterility of unused wells.
SkinGlo™-Tox HT is flexible so that the investigator can use there own growth medium to culture the cells.
