Cell Fitness Panel Reagents

The Cell Fitness Panel Kit is designed for researchers interested in acquiring data on cell sample health and quality.

Many samples in cellular therapy, immunotherapy, and cell line development, are by their nature unique and precious. Patient-derived primary samples are often comprised of a heterogeneous cell population and display a wide range of physiological behaviors. Whether these samples underwent a freeze/thaw cycle, or cell isolation procedure, or have been cultured within a bioreactor for an extended period, the Cell Fitness Panel is used to assess not only the wellbeing of cell samples but also to offer potential insights into samples with low or crashing viabilities.

The Cell Fitness Panel consists of five individual tests to assess viability, vitality, mid and late-stage apoptosis, and reactive oxidative stress.

ViaStain™ Total ROS Green

Oxidative stress is caused by an accumulation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) within cells or tissues. While the production of ROS is part of the normal cellular metabolic processes, the cell’s inability to neutralize these radicals may have a direct impact on cell health, physiological functions, and possibly lead to cell damage or even cell death. Over the years, oxidative stress has been linked with multiple chronic and degenerative diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, stroke, inflammatory diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, and cancer.  The role of antioxidants, including vitamins C and E, polyphenols, and flavonoids, in the reduction of oxidative stress, continues to be a major area of study.

ViaStain™ Total ROS Green kits for Cellometer Spectrum and Cellaca MX uses a unique ROS sensor to quantify ROS in live cells. ROS Green is a cell-permeable stain that generates a strong green fluorescence signal upon reaction with ROS to obtain quantitative cell metrics.

Features and Benefits:

  1. Validated for use on Cellometer Spectrum and Cellaca MX systems
  2. Rapid automatic data analysis using pre-existing templates
  3. Optimized easy-to-follow protocol for best results
Jurkat cells ROS negative and positive

Untreated, healthy, Jurkat cells (ROS negative, left) show very little green fluorescence while drug-treated cells (ROS positive, right) produce a bright green ROS positive signal.
