Cell Viability Assays

MTT Assay

MTT assay is used to evaluate whether new drugs have potent activity in inhibiting the growth of a variety of cells, including endothelial cells, pericytes, cancer cells, fibroblast, etc. Below, you can see that the compounds inhibited the growth of primary bovine retinal capillary endothelial cells (BRCECs). BRCECs were treated with 4 compounds at the concentrations of 0.5, 1, 2, 4, 8 µM for 3 days. After the treatment, viable cells were quantified using MTT assay.
