A simple planimetric method to quantify cytotoxicity in cell culture monolayers.

Abstract

Planimetry was shown to be a rapid, simple and reproducible method to quantify gross cytotoxicity in cell culture monolayers. A shellfish extract prepared from blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) was cytotoxic to Buffalo green monkey kidney cells. Exposure of cells to mussel extracts for 1, 2 and greater than or equal to 4 h followed by agar (plaque assay… (More)
