LIVE/DEAD® Cell Viability Assays
Invitrogen offers complete solutions for easy, sensitive determination of cell viability, cell vitality and compound cytotoxicity. These fluorescence-based LIVE/DEAD® assays can be used to examine animal cells, bacteria, yeast and fungi. Specific LIVE/DEAD® assays can be used for flow cytometry, microscopy, or microplate formats. Fluorescent dyes used in the viability assays range from blue to near-IR emission. Our LIVE/DEAD® fixable viability assays permit fixation which enables intracellular staining and neutralization of pathogens.
These kits combine fluorescent reagents to yield, in most cases, two-color discrimination of the population of live cells from the dead-cell population without any wash steps. These are ideal for high-throughput screening, imaging, fluorometry and flow cytometry.

Our LIVE/DEAD® Yeast Viability Kits provide an extremely simple and sensitive assay for discriminating viable yeast and fungi in complex mixtures or in pure cultures. The Yeast Viability Kit uses FUN 1 dye and Calcofluor White M2R. The FungaLight™ Yeast Viability Kit uses 2 nucleic acids stains.

LIVE/DEAD® Fixable Dead Cell Stain Kits allow you to accurately distinguish live and dead cells when performing intracellular staining in flow cytometry. Additionally, the dyes in the kits react covalently with protein so that the discrimination is completely preserved following fixation of the sample by formaldehyde, under conditions that inactivate pathogens.
