GreenScreen HC

Product Description

GreenScreen® HC is an accurate and fast in vitro human cell-based assay for the assessment of genotoxicity and cytotoxicity of compounds and mixtures.

The assay detects substances that are capable of causing damage to genetic material (DNA) within a cell. GreenScreen HC uses the human-derived, p53 competent, TK6 cell line to host a patented green fluorescent protein (GFP) reporter  system which exploits the proper regulation of the GADD45a gene.

Exposure to a genotoxic compound increases the expression of GADD45a and hence the induction of GFP production in the test strain. Simultaneous quantification of relative cell density or cell viability allows assessment of cytotoxicity.

•    Unique combination of high specificity and high sensitivity for genotoxicity
•    Detects all mechanistic classes of genotoxin (mutagens, aneugens and clastogens)
•    Most accurate genotoxicity screening test available
•    Simple, robust and fast protocol
•    Low sample requirement

The 96-well microplate format takes about 20 minutes to prepare and delivers results after a 48 hour incubation. A single microplate is used for the simultaneous testing of 4 compounds over 9 serial dilutions. The protocol is readily automated using standard laboratory equipment.

Scientific News
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.
Experimental Combination Surprises with Anti-HIV Effectiveness
A compound developed to protect the nervous system from HIV surprised researchers by augmenting the effectiveness of an investigational antiretroviral drug beyond anything expected.
Useful Colon Cancer Biomarker Discovered
Biomarker is detectable with simple, inexpensive test.
