WST-8 Assay


Toxicity leading to loss of tissue viability results in loss of NADH or NAD(P)H dehydrogenase activity. The tissue enzyme activity serves as a marker of viability and can be assessed using various dyes, like WST-8. Comparing the amount of the formazan generated by dehydrogenases is directly in proportion to the numbers of living cells.
