AbstractEvaluating drug sensitivity is improved by directly quantifying death kinetics, rather than correlates of viability, such as metabolic activity. This is challenging, requiring time-lapse microscopy and genetically encoded labels to distinguish live and dead cells. Here, we describe fluorescence-based and lysis-dependent inference of cell death kinetics (FLICK). This method requires only a standard fluorescence plate reader, retaining the high-throughput nature and broad accessibility of common viability assays. However, FLICK specifically quantifies death, including an accurate inference of death kinetics. For complete details on the use and execution of this protocol, please refer to Richards et al. (2020).
