Caption: Cancer research. Hand using a multi-pipette during human cancer cell research. Cancer cells were grown in the wells of this microtitre plate, before being exposed to different concentrations of a new anticancer (chemotherapy) drug. Anticancer drugs are designed to stop cancer cells from proliferating. Sulforhodamine B, a pink dye that binds to cellular material, was then added. The pinker the well, the greater the number of cells present, and this can be measured quantitatively using colourimetric assay. This allows the relationship between the concentration of the drug and its inhibition of cancer cell growth to be established.
