In in vitro pharmacotoxicology, techniques which permit detection at very low levels are highly desirable. By using microplate techniques (with fewer cells), it is possible to measure a number of parameters such as NRU and MTT, EROD and PROD activities, and in parallel the metabolism of compounds of interest by detection and quantitation with high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), electrochemical detection, mass spectrometry, etc. Such studies have the advantage of being a multidisciplinary approach to evaluate biological effects, as well as saving biological materials (cells, animals) and chemicals.
