Cellular 'Relief Valve'
A team led by scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) has solved a long-standing mystery in cell biology by showing essentially how a key “relief-valve” in cells does its job.
Genomic Signature Shared by Five Types of Cancer
National Institutes of Health researchers have identified a striking signature in tumor DNA that occurs in five different types of cancer.
Cat Stem Cell Therapy Gives Humans Hope
By the time Bob the cat came to the UC Davis veterinary hospital, he had used up most of his nine lives.
Crowdfunding the Fight Against Cancer
From budding social causes to groundbreaking businesses to the next big band, crowdfunding has helped connect countless worthy projects with like-minded people willing to support their efforts, even in small ways. But could crowdfunding help fight cancer?
New Biomarker to Assess Stem Cells Developed
A research team led by scientists from UCL have found a way to assess the viability of 'manufactured' stem cells known as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs). The team's discovery offers a new way to fast-track screening methods used in stem cell research.
A Better Model for Parkinson's
Scientists at EPFL solve a longstanding problem with modeling Parkinson’s disease in animals. Using newfound insights, they improve both cell and animal models for the disease, which can propel research and drug development.
Faster Drug Discovery?
Startup develops more cost-effective test for assessing how cells respond to chemicals.
Microalgae Make a Splash in the UK Cosmeceutical Market
Scottish innovators have discovered an anti-viral and anti-inflammatory carbohydrate in microscopic algae (microalgae) which has huge potential to change the cosmetics market.
Mechanism of Tumor Suppressing Gene Uncovered
The most commonly mutated gene in cancer,p53, works to prevent tumor formation by keeping mobile elements in check that otherwise lead to genomic instability, UT Southwestern Medical Center researchers have found.

Determination of microbial cell viability

Tecan Group Ltd.

The chemistry of the assay relies on the properties of a thermostable luciferase (Ultra-Glo™ Recombinant Luciferase) and a proprietary formulation for extracting ATP from bacteria. The luminescent signal generated is proportional to the amount of ATP, and therefore an indicator of the number of viable cells in the sample. The ‘glow-type’ nature of the assay permits signal measurement over a period of approximately 30 minutes, depending on the type of bacteria and growth medium. 

The BacTiter-Glo Microbial Cell Viability Assay was tested on the Infinite F200 PRO filter-based multimode reader, using the instrument’s highly sensitive luminescence module.
