Cell viability and cytotoxicity assays are used usually for screening of drugs
and cytotoxicity tests of chemicals. Cell viability, cell proliferation and many important
live-cell functions can be stimulated or monitored with various chemical and biological
reagents. The present chapter is aimed to discuss the various available method
Biolumniscence, Bromodeoxyuridine and Clonogenic assay,
Carboxyfluorescein diacetatesuccinimidyl ester, Hemocytometer, LDH assay,
MTT assay, Trypan blue.
