Evaluation of colony formation using the CnT-ST-100 stain kit.

The CnT-ST-100 stain kit can be used to stain fixed cells.

It consists of two different ready-to-use components which can be re-used up to five times.

The stain kit can be used for cells growing on different surfaces:

• Confleuncy in Cell culture inserts: The stain solutions can be used to evaluate cell confluency on polycarbonate and PET membranes. The cells can be stained on mixed cellulose ester membranes, only when ethanol is utilizes as a fixing agent.

• Colony Forming Efficiency: Cells growing on cell culture plastic surface can be stained to monitor for colony forming efficiency, growth pattern etc.

• Cells growing on chamber slides.

The recommended protocol can be found in the Other Protocols page of our resources section.
