A new LDH Cytotoxicity Assay Kit

By Jared Snider

Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) is a cytosolic enzyme present in many different types of cells and is released from the cell when the plasma membrane is damaged. The released LDH can be quantified by a coupled enzymatic reaction and used to measure the cytotoxicity of an experimental condition in cell culture-based experiments. LDH cytotoxicity assays are great when measuring the cytotoxicity of drug candidates, siRNA molecules, transfection reagents or any other application in which cell cytotoxicity needs to be measured.

Check out our new Pierce LDH Cytotoxicity Assay Kit to perform colorimetric cytotoxicity assays.


Convenient – add-mix-read assay format for adherent and suspension cells
Colorimetric – quantitatively measures LDH release by formation of colored product
Robust – uses stable LDH enzyme activity as a cytotoxic marker
Flexible – ideal for high-throughput screening
Non-radioactive – safe alternative to 51Cr-release cytotoxicity assays
