Cell Counting Kit 8 (CCK-8) - An easier way for MTT assay users to analyse cell viability on 2D or 3D cell culture

Test our new and more sensitive colorimetric cell viability assay : Cell Counting Kit 8 (CCK-8)

Based on the use of a highly water-soluble tetrazolium salt (WST-8), the Cell Counting Kit-8 (CCK-8) from Dojindo Laboratories, allows a better and easier colorimetric assays for the determination of cell viability, cell proliferation and citotoxicity assay in comparison to the classical MTT cell viability assay

The 5 main benefits (to keep it short!)

  • Viabilitiy analysis on classical or organoid cell culture
  • Re-use of cells after colorimetric measurement
  • Highest sensitivity
  • Less cellular toxicity
  • Easier and quicker - One ready-to-use bottle / no need to dissolve Salt / no need to lyse cells

Thanks to its water-soluble salt (WST-8), the CCK-8 colorimetric assay is currently the most well accepted assay in academia,
in comparison with other Tetrazolium salt assays.

Interested in trying one of these assays for free?

We have a limited number of samples available, for you to try the CCK-8 kit in your lab.

Yes, please send me a free sample of the CCK-8 kit
