ATP is a marker for cell viability because it is present in all metabolically active cells. Because ATP concentration declines rapidly when cells undergo necrosis or apoptosis, monitoring ATP is a good indicator of cytocidal, cytostatic and proliferation effects. Our ATPlite 3D and ATPlite 1step 3D luminescence assay systems use patented innovative technologies that measure cell proliferation and cytotoxicity in 3D cultured mammalian cells based on the production of light caused by the reaction of ATP with added luciferase and D-luciferin.
ATPlite™ 1Step 3D is an Adenosine TriPhosphate (ATP) monitoring system based on firefly (Photinus pyralis) luciferase. This luminescence assay is the alternative to colorimetric, fluorometric, High content microscopic analysis and radioisotopic assays for the quantitative evaluation of proliferation and cytotoxicity of mammalian cells cultured cultured in 3D spheroids. ATP monitoring can be used to assess the cytocidal, cytostatic and proliferative effects of a wide range of drugs, biological response modifiers and biological compounds.
