Sulforhodamine B (SRB) Assay in Cell Culture to Investigate Cell Proliferation
Authors:  Esteban A. Orellana and Andrea L. Kasinski, date: 11/05/2016, view: 39985, Q&A: 0
The SRB assay has been used since its development in 1990 (Skehan et al., 1990) to inexpensively conduct various screening assays to investigate cytotoxicity in cell based studies (Vichai and Kirtikara, 2006). This method relies on the ...
